About Ramsay

Hello! I am a recent graduate of Columbia College Chicago with a major in writing, which is in the English department. I am going to be attending UIUC Law in the fall, and I'm looking for summer tutoring opportunities!

I am currently a tutor of reading for a learning center; in this capacity I have worked with students from third grade to twelfth. I enjoy working with students, and teaching, and I'm looking forward to what will probably be my last opportunity to do so this summer.

In addition to my experience tutoring students in reading, I have extensive experience as an editor of writing. I majored in writing, and I was an editor for the magazine The South Loop Review for three semesters, during which I would edit up to thirty, three to six page essays per week. I enjoy editing, and would love to have the opportunity to help you with your papers or paper-writing.

Moreover, though this is less of a technical qualification than the above, I am a voracious reader. I have read Chaucer in Middle English, Spenser, Shakespeare; I have read Gilgamesh, the Tain, Homer and Vergil; Locke and Hume, Nietzsche, Kuhn and Rorty; and I have read many volumes in addition to all these. I feel that this, sincerely, is a weightier endorsement of my ability to tutor and edit, and do so passionately, even than my experience tutoring and editing.

Please feel free to contact me regarding tutoring positions. I look forward to working with you!
