About Elizabeth

As a PhD candidate, I've worked as both a private tutor and a writing center tutor at two major universities while pursuing my BA and MA. I'm skilled in MLA, APA, Chicago, and AP citation style conventions. As for public speaking, I have two degrees in rhetoric and won several public speaking and debate awards while pursuing those degrees. Finally, I worked on student newspapers throughout college and built upon editing skills from those years by working as a writing center tutor and editing student projects during short tutoring sessions.

I am also a business and technical writing instructor with 6+ semesters of experience teaching undergraduate professional writing courses. If you need help writing employment or application documents, designing or revising your resume, I am happy to help you achieve your goals!

I enjoy working one-on-one to help students improve their writing, organization, critical thinking, and argumentative skills. Whether you want to work on your writing from brainstorming to final revision, public speaking research, approach, and delivery, or would like to improve your editing skills, I'd be delighted to help!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Adobe InDesign

As a professional writing instructor, I teach Adobe InDesign as a central skill in my Business Writing, Technical Writing, and Professional Writing undergraduate major courses. I coach students on how to design documents using the program, including applying multi-column layouts, master page templates, inserting images and text appropriately, and editing/proofreading their content for appropriate readers.

Public Speaking

As an undergraduate working toward my BA degree in Writing, Rhetoric, and Communication, I was a member of collegiate debate team and won third place in regional paired debate tournament.

While I was a Masters student pursuing a degree in Writing, Rhetoric, and Discourse, I won "Best Student Presentation" for regional graduate student conference of approximately 30 presenters.

As a PhD candidate, I've presented at seven national conferences in which I gave oral presentations as part of a larger panel presentation.
