Gustavus Adolphus College (English)
University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee (Master's)
I recently completed my coursework for a Master's in Library and Information Science through the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, and I work at a midsize law firm in Minneapolis. I graduated summa cum laude from Gustavus Adolphus College with a BA in English and minor in Spanish.
I have experience private tutoring in writing, test prep, and Spanish through WyzAnt, and I have experience peer tutoring in Spanish, writing, and math in both college and high school. I enjoy working with students to develop topics, organize papers, and edit academic, creative, and professional writing. In college, I was paired as a tutor with fellow classmates by my Formal Logic professor, and I worked as a Spanish tutor in the modern languages department. In addition, I have gained experience working with friends and classmates to improve their writing ability and reviewed scholarship and graduate school applications.
I believe communication is essential to the tutoring process. I am always looking for participation and feedback from my tutees to ensure they are actively involved in learning the material and realizing how much they really know and are able to contribute to their own education.

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.
