University of St. Francis (English)
I have always had an affinity for just about everything related to reading and writing. Growing up, I was the trusted individual in my household to proofread my siblings’ essays, tell creative stories, and act as a human spellchecker (I was the seven year reigning champion of my elementary school’s spelling bee). When I made it to the University of St. Francis. I was given the opportunity to turn my interest in English Literature into an undergraduate major, where I took courses that ranged from British Literature to Critical Theory, romantic poetry to analyzing children’s stories, from creative writing to courses on understanding learning theories and how to use them in teaching writing.
I also worked as a writing tutor in the university’s Academic Resource Center where I completed training to receive a Level Two certification. As a result, I have encountered reading and writing in varying academic levels and in a variety of contexts, and I have never been afraid to research information in order to increase my knowledge base.
Ultimately, in my tutoring sessions I strive to guide students through the writing process in regards to brainstorming, proofreading, structuring and organizing ideas, proper citations, and other focused areas of English in order to improve written work.
I am very flexible with tutoring availability, and am able to travel to students or communicate online. My rate is $40 an hour for in-person lessons and $30 an hour for online collaboration. ??Please feel free to contact me for more details. I appreciate your time and consideration!

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.
