About Steffany

Hi there! I am a former Writing & Rhetoric professor (aka freshman comp, comp 101, writing and rhetoric 101 and 102) and love helping students understand how to best phrase their ideas. So often, my students struggled to express themselves, because their ideas were simply too large for them. I specialize in grammar and writing. Typically, I find students need help breaking topics down into a more specific focus and finding the best sources possible to "prove" that assertion. Additionally, organization tends to be a common concern for students. You'll find my teaching style to be critical, helpfully informative, and somehow enjoyable.

I was an English and German double major in college. English is a Germanic language, and trust me, the most Germanic aspect of English is its grammatical structure. I can explain why it is "whom" and its Germanic root. I have been an Assistant Editor for two literary journals. I have an MFA in Nonfiction Writing, which focuses on essays and literary analysis. I am an avid reader and would love to help you on a more thesis-driven paper as well. These, after all, are the things I enjoy.

Please don't hesitate to reach out. Learning can be fun, and writing easy. Take a chance on me, and you just might find yourself tutoring others some day.
