About Nina


Bio

I have a strong background in languages and previously worked as a Writing Coach at my alma mater's Writing Center. I have edited and provided feedback on many types of academic writing samples such as dissertations, theses, research papers, scholarship application essays, cover letters, resumes/CVs, and more. I can provide direction for grammar, syntax, and vocabulary, as well as formatting styles (e.g. MLA, APA, and Turabian), and I am most versed in working with college and adult students....

I find ways to make writing fun! I am patient, friendly, engaging, and responsive to student needs. My class voted me "most likely to write a textbook."

Drawing

During my undergraduate education, I developed skills in the fine arts. I took courses in drawing, oil painting, print-making, black and white film photography, abstract art, and sculpture of stone and wood. I continue to draw and oil paint in my own time and can provide tips and guidance for developing fundamental drawing skills.

Political Science

I minored in political science as an undergraduate student, and I have continued to take elective public policy and law classes at my university's government school. Twice, I had first-hand experience lobbying Congress in Washington D.C. through different organizations. I read and study a great deal about how our government system functions. I also stay up-to-date with current political events.

Exceeded every expectation

Nina reviewed and helped format a research paper for my master's degree. She was quick to answer my initial question and ready to help right away. Her corrections and suggestions were high level AND she made it easy for me to apply/fix them in my paper. . . AND she did it much quicker than I expected. I'm very thankful for the help.

Excellent Tutor

Nina is helping me learn PowerPoint whereas I was clueless and never used it previously. From our brief phone call through the first lesson she is so thorough, easy to follow, and works at a pace easy for the student to understand and learn. She is extremely pleasant and cares about my needs for learning PowerPoint, not to mention Nina is so knowledgeable and proficient as a tutor. I can't wait for our second session for I am gaining great confidence after just one lesson.

Wonderful Tutor

Nina was very helpful and patient. When I struggled with writing, she helped me to organize my thoughts clearly. Even though it took me a while to write a paper, she was very patient. Once I finished writing the paper, she read it thoroughly and gave me excellent feedback to improve organization, content, and grammar. I am very grateful for her support throughout the writing process and her feedback!

Nina is an excellent tutor!

Nina helped me across the board. She helped with everything from basic constructive recommendations to forming my own sentences from scratch. I was able to write my own paper and have it filtered through Nina's expertise. She effectively communicates and I feel I got a lot from her lesson.

Phenomenal Editor

I had asked Nina to help me revise and proofread my literature review paper. She provided very specific feedback, made my paragraphs more concise, made edits according to APA style (as requested), and provided overall suggestions to make my paper more cohesive. This was all done in a very timely fashion. I would highly recommend Nina to those who need help writing academic papers.
