Northeastern University (Journalism)
If there's one thing I've learned through my (continuing) education, it's that it is all about personal motivation. My parents have never pushed me as a student, I've always pushed myself. I've challenged myself through the courses I take, the books I read, and the stories I cover. I always strive to get the most information I possibly can. I'm 22 years old and know exactly what it's like to be a student; I'm motivated with the right balance of fun.
I'm currently a journalism student at Northeastern University and have a minor in art history. I would be more than willing to not only help on English related matters, but also history tutoring (AP Art History exam is right around the corner and p.s. I got a 5). My mom is a middle school English teacher and I have a younger sister, both of which have helped me to connect with others when it comes to helping with school work. I also worked with a first grader for about 6 months, where we did math and English homework weekly.
I haven't tutored formally, but have helped with homework etc. during babysitting, which has allowed me to work with kindergarten, elementary school, middle school, and some high school work. Through these experiences, my tutoring approach isn't just about instruction, but is about doing the work in combination with the student; whether it be reading Crime and Punishment, or drawing the word "apple." In relation to my credentials, I have gotten Dean's List every semester in college and will be graduating with honors with a GPA of 3.62, as well as taken honors and AP classes throughout high school.
I love the idea of helping others to succeed. I know as a student, I put immense pressure on myself to achieve the best I can and that is very anxiety provoking and intimidating. I hope I can help ease those nerves for students and parents alike, whether it be elementary spelling or even providing some advice on college essays. I'm willing to work on assignments related to journalism, writing, analytical writing and reading, literature, college essays, cover letters, American history, art history, and world history.

Group rates will need to be adjusted. If the assignment is more time consuming, I'll charge more.
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.
