I have been a writing tutor and supervisor at the Macalester Academic Excellence Center for the past three years; I am CRLA level II certified, and I've worked with a variety of clients from different backgrounds, including many English Language Learners. I've worked one on one and in groups with students who have just graduated high school to those who are about to graduate college, and I am particularly knowledgeable and able to support LGBT+ students. In my unpaid work, I have experience teaching novice piano, sewing, drawing, and other subjects.

My favourite part about tutoring is meeting new students and supporting them in all aspects of the learning process; I like to create low-stress environments in which folks can relax, try new things, and further develop important skills. Although working to improve skills can take a lot of hard work, the journey getting there can still be enjoyable!

Drawing

I graduated from Macalester College with a Studio Art BA in 2016, and my primary focus was drawing. Through tutoring art history writing at the Macalester Academic Excellence Center for three years and taking many art history classes, I can provide both technical feedback as well as thorough knowledge of historical and stylistic trends. In my free time, I have tutored several of my friends in the basics of drawing; I feel comfortable with a variety of styles and experience levels.
