About Tyler

I have a long and exhaustive relationship with words and language: My education has lead me from an undergraduate degree in English with a minor in Communications to a Masters degree in English - both of which were achieved at the University of Massachusetts - Boston.

Over the past two years I have had the privilege of teaching an undergraduate 200 level English course two undergraduate students varying in age from 18 to 60 and coming from all disciplines. I have also served as a one-to-one writing tutor for these same undergraduate students over those two years. In my spare time I like to play basketball and video games. I am a dedicated scholar but I don't take myself too seriously.

I like to create an easy, comfortable, manageable environment for my tutees where we not only work to become better writers critically and technically, but we also build relationships.

I have recently been awarded a Fulbright grant - A prestigious honor in the field of English, Communication, and Composition - that will have me traveling, in September, to the country of Montenegro for a year of teaching and to facilitate strong international bonds. With my experience tutoring at the college level to all age groups and skill levels, both as native English teachers and English language learners, as well as my focus on fluid lesson planning, I believe I can be a huge benefit to middle school, high school, and beyond.

In the paragraph above I have listed my credentials, awards, and experience but for a quick overview:
BA - English: University of Massachusetts - Boston '08-'13
Recipient of Honors in English for Undergraduate Thesis.
MA - English: University of Massachusetts - Boston '14-'16
Alvan S. Ryan Award - Given annually for the best literature paper in the English MA program at UMass Boston.
Fulbright Grant Finalist '16-'17 - English Teaching position in Montenegro
