I have experience tutoring middle, high school, college and graduate students in academic writing techniques. I am substitute middle and high school teacher and a former dissertation chair for an online university where I coached students in the dissertation process from start to finish.

If you are in middle or high school, don’t be shy about working with me. Whether you are writing your first term paper or completing your senior project, I can teach you effective library research techniques, including proper citation. It is better if you learn the proper skills and techniques early in your academic career than try to learn it when you get to college.

Regardless of your grade or skill level, if you have an area you wish to work on such as grammar, organization, writing a problem statement or thesis, I can tutor you in all of these skills. If you are writing a dissertation, my research methodology specialty is qualitative research. I can assist you in research design using qualitative methods.

I am passionate about writing research papers. I know it is really silly, but I was the one that spent hours researching in the library at the beginning of the semester. My friends went out to parties and I went to the library. I enjoy the entire process and the feeling of accomplishment when that final paper is turned into the teacher.

I will bring this passion to my tutoring. If you are one that dreads the whole process, let me teach you techniques to make it easier. I can also clarify some concepts about academic writing that others find burdensome. Improve your academic writing is a skills through practice.

Don’t let the deadlines for term papers give you anxiety. Use those deadlines to get organized and motivate yourself. I will break the process down so that you can methodically complete the paper, large or small. Let’s work together to complete your next assignment, and, perhaps, you may attain a higher grade than you have earned in the past.

Patient, respectful, and helpful

Identified where I am in my research; guided where I need to continue to complete my research; and what I should be doing now or need to do now to complete my research.
