Eastern University (English)
My name is Parker D. I'm 21 and I currently attend Eastern University in Pennsylvania where I study English with a focus in writing. I am an experienced writing tutor, having worked as one for two years at the collegiate level. I can tutor students in reading, writing, vocab, grammar, etc., in other words, basically anything English-related. I love to work with all age groups; I have lots of experience doing volunteer work with elementary age kids through the North Attleboro Challenger Baseball League (where I worked as an assistant coach for kids with special needs) and I also helped lead an inner city program for kids in Providence doing crafts, storytelling, sports-related activities, etc. I am an experienced writer and I have had two short stories published in an international online magazine in the past year (Cadaverine Magazine).
I love tutoring because it provides me an opportunity to help people and help them particularly in what I love: English. Tutoring offers a chance to showcase encouragement and empowerment on an emotional level in addition to just helping people grasp concepts and ideas. Speaking as one who has been tutored one-on-one many times, I can't stress enough how refreshing and rewarding one-on-one tutoring is as compared to the rote, mechanical atmosphere of a classroom setting. I know how rewarding it has been to me and I want to give students the opportunity to have the same experience.
I'm a very friendly person and I don't mind working with people with whom I am unfamiliar. I love working with all age groups and as a published writer and seasoned writing tutor I have lots of experience in my field. I believe that my greatest strength as a writing tutor is my ability to simplify concepts and ideas for people younger than me or less experienced in English, which enables me to work comfortably with anyone regardless of age, education, intelligence, etc.
I'd love to tutor anyone looking for help in English and I have lots of experience as a writing tutor, so contact me if you're looking for help in anything involving writing, reading, grammar, vocabulary, or SAT writing/reading preparation.

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.
