About Olivia

Hi! My name is Olivia and I'm an sophomore English major and Philosophy minor at University of Florida. I'm passionate about literature, reading and writing and I hope to become an English professor. I have taken several college English courses in which helped to sharpen my skills in writing, theory, grammar, and interpretation of all types of literature. I'm well experienced with essay writing and comprehension and I have a wide knowledge of literature.

As a tutor, I can proofread your work and help edit and improve it, or I can help with reading comprehension. I can also help with standardized test prep as well as any English-related work you may need some assistance with. I look forward to working with you!

Literature is my best subject. Right now I am taking lit courses at UF and studying to be a professor of literature, but I've been independently studying literature throughout my life. I have a wide knowledge of writers and writing styles.

I have a wide knowledge of English vocabulary which comes from English courses, literature, and personal reading. I have to use upper-level vocabulary on a daily basis as an English student.
