About Joy

I am a writing tutor looking for students in the Boston Area. For my undergraduate thesis, I wrote over 200 pages of ethnography (anthropological, story-based, non-fiction) at a writing focused school (Marlboro College.) I am skilled in MLA, Chicago, and scientific citations. I have experience with graduate level editing, sentence structure and grammar teaching, and basic brainstorming. I can help with school and college entrance essays, long term writing projects, and SAT writing preparation as well as other school based writing projects. I will help you learn the beauty of communicating through writing!

I had a very hard time with writing throughout my time in grade school. I was an undiagnosed dyslexic. Now that I have come to terms with my disability, I have learned a lot of ways to work around it! I am always looking for creative solutions and ways to help students to learn rather than memorize! I understand that everyone has a different understanding of the world and that this can impact their learning style. I teach to the student to that they will go well beyond the test to a greater understanding of the material. I teach students to go beyond the basics and to love learning!

In addition to writing, I am happy to help with history, art, music theory, statistics, logic, and elementary mathematics. I am most interested in interdisciplinary learning and finding new ways to teach subject both for good test results and for lifetime learning.

While I would like to hear from you 24 hours before a cancellation, I need at least 3 hours warning. I am happy to travel anywhere within the reach of the MBTA. I can also host students in my Medford home.

I have a full understanding of literature and proofreading. I am fluent with the entire writing process. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

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.

Anthropology

I feel in love with anthropology in 2008 after an introductory class at community college. In 2013, I graduated with a BA in Anthropology and Environmental Studies from Marlboro College. I have field experience with cultural anthropology in Seattle, WA. I am knowledgeable and experience in ethnographic writing and anthropological theory.

Proofreading

After 7 years of college level editing, I am fluent in proofreading all levels and types of writing.

Writing

I am an experienced writer and editor having worked with individuals from many different background in an understanding of clear English writing.

My students have come from several native languages and many backgrounds. I enjoy learning from you as much as helping you to learn!
