About Burton

I am a recent cum laude graduate from DePaul University with a degree in History and a minor in Irish Studies, my specialty is humanities; more specifically History (European and New World), English (language and classics), Philosophy, Anthropology, and elementary French. I am also skilled in academic writing and rhetoric, having acquired full knowledge of MLA, APA, and Chicago style citation and volunteer experience with the Chicago Metro History Fair, where I helped inner-city youth with research techniques and paper structure. As native Quebec French speaker, I am certified in teaching French from Language Studies Canada and have had several years of freelance tutoring experience during college and I have helped several francophone and other foreign students learn English at an advanced academic level. I am currently taking a year off from my studies and would be happy to travel to your location or mine.

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.

ESL/ESOL

As a native English speaker and freelance tutor, I have had several years of experience working with students from all over to world to help reduce their accents and improve their English. I have also helped these students with writing in academic English as well. I have personally sat for the TOEFL exam to gain a better understanding of what non-native speakers have to go through to improve their language abilities.
