I worked as a Communications Editor for a large manufacturing company for six years before I got tired of living my life in a cubicle, producing work that was meaningless and unfulfilling. After I quit, I tried teaching and discovered that I get an immense amount of satisfaction from helping students reach their goals and become successful. I've been teaching for about six years now, and I'm currently an adjunct instructor at both Rock Valley College and Rockford University. In particular, I love my work in the Writing Center at Rock Valley College, where I'm able to work individually with students. This is where I feel I can have the greatest impact and help students the most. As a result, I welcome the opportunity to work as a one-on-one tutor with students who can use my assistance.
I have experience working with ESL/ESOL/EFL students, and I understand the specific challenges they face and how to address them. My master's degree was focused on written rhetoric (as opposed to literature), so I have an in-depth knowledge of not only grammar, syntax, and similar composition issues, but also the practical issues that struggling or novice writers face.
I sincerely look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your goals.

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.
