About KC

Fall 2016 begins the final year of my undergraduate degree in creative writing. I've been a writing tutor for the Calderwood Writing program at the University of Massachusetts - Boston since the fall of last year. I also write poetry and hope to one day publish writing for others.

I am on track to receiving an initial teaching licensure in the state of Massachusetts through the University of Massachusetts - Boston.

It takes a willingness to develop as a writer and for some it can be a challenging task, but I believe it should be fun for everybody. Initially I struggled with reading until finding the materials that connected. I didn't think about how it sounded, but I still journaled the thoughts to myself. I didn't realize how much improvement my writing could go through with help from my peers and professors, and I strongly believe support from others is all anybody really needs.

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.

Public Speaking

I completed the Dale Carnegie Skills in Public Speaking course granting me credits in public speaking. I've taken communications and adolescent psychology courses that have aided to my skill as a public speaker and my ability to teach it. Also as a mentor at the Summer Transportation Institution I coached 9th-12th graders on public speaking skills.
