About Karissa

I am an experienced tutor who enjoys encouraging students and helping them become stronger and more confident readers and writers. I have six years of tutoring experience in writing and speaking at the college level. I have worked with students on many writing and speaking projects including poster presentations, public speaking, conference presentations, research reports, fiction, poetry, theses and dissertations. In addition to working with college students, I have also taught at both the middle and high school level. I taught English, linguistics, history, and social justice units at three schools for service learning trips during my graduate studies.

I have worked with students at all levels and at all stages of the writing process. I also love to work with students on reading comprehension and study skills. Writing and reading have always been my passion. I understand that not everyone enjoys writing or reading like I do. The reason I want to tutor students in reading and writing is to help them become stronger readers and writers. After all, no matter what career you go into, it will be necessary to have exemplary oral and written communication skills. We sometimes forget how much reading and writing we do on a daily basis (including outside of school or work). It is my goal to help students gain the skills they will need to succeed both in school, work, and life.

ESL - currently working on TESOL certification
Editing/Proofreading - I have edited two published books and am working on a third right now. I also worked as a writing tutor for over 6 years.
Public Speaking - in addition to tutoring students in writing, we also worked on public speaking.
Writing - I love to write. It has been a hobby of mine since I was in first grade. I still love to write and help others become stronger writers.

I have already been tutoring at the college (undergraduate and graduate) level for six years. Tutoring was one of my favorite parts of being in college and grad school. I would love to continue to help students grow.
