About Levi

Though I have no true experience in teaching or tutoring, I have a strong love of learning and understand the implications and opportunities awarded to students that put in the effort to succeed in school. Currently, I am an undergraduate student at Truman State University in Kirksville, MO, majoring in English. In the spring of 2016, I will be a transfer student at the University of Iowa. Additionally, I am proud to say that I will have gone to the number one public university in the midwest (Truman State University) and will be continuing my English education at the University of Iowa, a university whose English program is one of the best in the nation.

I specialize in English and within the English discipline, I concentrate on literary theory, 19th-Century American literature, and critical analysis. In any case, my main goals for each session are to 1) keep the student challenged, but not overwhelmed, 2) develop an understanding in the student how language affects everything we do and how to write in a coherent, concise manner, and 3) keeping the student involved and engaged through non-monotonous sessions.

I offer students the ability to have sessions online, at their address or my address to try to offer a flexible time slots.

With English being my first love of learning, I have taken many courses in literary theory, critical analysis, and 19th-Century American literature. Most recently, I had the opportunity to present my research ("The World Forgetting By The World Forgot: A Freudian Psychoanalysis of "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind") at Truman State University's 2015 Undergraduate Student Research Conference.

I look forward to hearing from you and am eager to help you succeed!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

My subject qualifications include being an English student at the university level for two years, writing an undergraduate research paper titled, "The World Forgetting By the World Forgot: A Freudian Psychoanalytic Criticism of 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,'" and being a student of French for some time. Each of these aspects of my education have given me certain expertise in areas of the English discipline. In these cases, those include the general knowledge obtained over two years of studying English, writing a coherent essay/paper using supporting evidence and research, and a deeper understanding of grammar and how language works from studying French and linguistics.
