About Roquiah

Hi,

My name is Roquiah (Ro-ky-ah), and writing is my passion! I am currently seeking to assist college-level students (undergraduate and graduate) with improving their writing skills. My methods include helping students find a more effective way to communicate their ideas and words by providing tools and resources that will help them with organization and research, and the utilization of correct grammar for required writing styles (i.e. MLA, APA, etc.).

I have 10 years of experience working in the higher educational field, aiding students with financial aid counseling and enrollment services, and serving as a technical writer for my department. I have been a technical data associate at Gulfstream Aerospace Corporation for two years, in which my job requires heavy technical writing, proofreading and research. I have earned an undergraduate degree in liberal studies and a graduate degree in adult education from Armstrong Atlantic State University and a second graduate degree in management from Walden University. In addition, I will complete a graduate certificate program of study in college teaching and learning from Walden University, June 29, 2014.

I adjust my teaching methods and techniques in accordance with the learning style of my student; I believe we all learn differently, and will use our first meeting to gauge your learning style, view samples of your current work and to gain a better understanding of what you are seeking to attain from your tutoring sessions. My overall goal is not to write your work for you, or to teach you to use big words, but to help you express yourself through writing in a clear and concise manner, in your own words, and understandable to your reader/audience.

*I am also proficient in Microsoft Word & PowerPoint!

I currently hold a full-time position, and to ensure that my schedule is conducive to your needs, I have provided my availability for tutoring and electronic communication (I am available to assist students online):

Traditional Tutor Schedule (one-on-one sessions): Mon-Thurs, 6pm-8pm; Fri-Sun, 10am-6pm
