Hello! My name is Rachel. I am a recent graduate from Eastern Michigan University, and I earned my BA in Linguistics, along with a minor in Creative Writing. I have done several research papers on various aspects of English grammar, and have written and edited numerous analytical, as well as creative, pieces on English literature and theory. I enjoy editing almost as much as I enjoy writing, although I always prefer to review an edit in person with the writer. It is one thing to read someone's feedback, and another to discuss why those edits need to be made, and how the written piece can grow.
Language is my passion, whether it be linguistic analysis, working on a creative project, or reading any book I can get my hands on, and I can think of nothing better than helping students to love this subject as much as I do. English can be difficult, which is part of the fun for me, and it can be frustrating. I aim to take the frustration out of the reading and writing process, and to replace it with the valuable English skills that are necessary for success in not only an English course, but is all courses requiring any form of writing.
I have a strict eye for detail. I plan to earn a graduate degree in Linguistics with a concentration in syntax, which is sentence structure. Studying this field has given me a love of grammar, as well as plenty of opportunity to study it, and several reference resources. I have also enjoyed an excellent education in experimental and "traditional" creative writing, having read, studied, analyzed, and written many works.
Put simply, English is amazing and vast. There is always something new to learn, to read, and to write, and I would love to help you, or your student, grow in this wonderful field. English, and more specifically, writing is a skill no one can escape from, no matter what their chosen field, and if I can help someone hone that skill, or come to appreciate just a tad more, I will consider it a job well done. I would love to work with you! Hello! My name is Rachel. I am a recent graduate from Eastern Michigan University, and I earned my BA in Linguistics, along with a minor in Creative Writing.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
