About Fithawee

Hello! I am a PhD student with a passion for teaching, and I work with high school and college students at various levels to help them improve their writing skills, test scores, and performance in other academic subjects. My focus is writing instruction and my educational background and three years of teaching experience prepare me to tutor students in reading, ACT/SAT/GRE prep, social studies, philosophy, several math subjects, and reading comprehension.

My approach to tutoring emphasizes student empowerment in the learning process. I believe that, for most students, the best way to improve one's writing is through dialogue, trial, and error, and I push students to clarify their ideas as they learn to better express themselves on paper. In addition to teaching the basics of good essay writing--grammar, mechanics, clarity, organization--I expect all students, regardless of their level, to become critical thinkers capable of expressing their own views persuasively in writing.

Whether writing an essay, reading a high-level text, or solving a math problem, I believe all learning can be challenging and rewarding. During tutor sessions I use tough questions and multiple examples to help students understand and learn from their own mistakes to become better writers and problem solvers. While my students are often frustrated with my incessant questions at first, they are quickly pleased when they discover how much they already know and how quickly they can improve.

Make the most out of your schooling and contact me today!
