A 2005 graduate from Georgia State University with a degree in Communications (Journalism concentration), I have been a working journalist for 10 years. I have written for various sporting publications with some being in the States and others abroad. In addition to having experience as a writer, I have also worked as an editor and have critiqued the work of and given feedback to other professional writers.

Recently, I had the chance to be a scorer for a major testing company and that experience is what led me to be interested in becoming a tutor. Of course I scored writing papers for the testing company, adhering to the principles set by their scoring guidelines. In my time as a scorer I saw many capable students score average or below average because of small things, that based on their work, I knew they had the ability to correct if made aware of them. I hope to use my expertise as both a writer and a scorer to help a student improve as a writer.

Being able to draw on my experiences as journalist and an essay scorer is why I am well-equipped to be a writing tutor.

My familiarity with the scoring process of the testing industry when it comes to writing tests is what makes me a great tutor for Common Core.
