Bio

Hey there! I am a teaching assistant in the Wheaton College English department where I work regularly with students on writing assignments and assist the professor with grading. I also work at the college's Writing Center, where I meet with both undergraduate and graduate students by appointment for 30-minute consultations to improve their academic writing.

Hey there! I am a teaching assistant in the Wheaton College English department where I work regularly with students on writing assignments and assist the professor with grading. I also work at the college's Writing Center, where I meet with both undergraduate and graduate students by appointment for 30-minute consultations to improve their academic writing. My degree from Wheaton is in English Writing, and I have experience with many different kinds of writing be it academic, creative, or business and would be happy to share some of my experience with you to help with whatever kind of assignments you're working on. My background also includes six years studying Latin, which turned me into a lover of language and vocabulary. As with many writers and language nerds, I'm also a big fan of reading, enough to know that reading is a skill - one you can learn and improve with practice. I also currently work at a local library and at an area literary agency (convinced I love English yet?).

I believe what makes me a good tutor is that I'm flexible (every student is different), empathetic (sometimes school is tough), and passionate (writing is my life!).

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out!

I'm a big word nerd. I took 6 years of Latin (over 60% of the English language is derived from Greek and Latin!) which fed an interest in etymologies and gave me lots of help with understanding words and their derivations. I think language is fun and important, and would enjoy working with your student to improve and broaden his or her vocabulary.

SAT Prep

Eleanor is tutoring my son for the reading portion of the SAT. She gave him good tips and was very knowledgeable. Eleanor is very nice and patient. My son came away from the session with new insight into tackling the questions and we feel that the advice Eleanor is providing will help him on the upcoming exam.
