The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (English)
My name is Nathan, and throughout my entire life, reading and writing has been in the forefront of my interests. From a hobby into an academic career, I've developed a passion for language that covers everything from reading for pleasure to understanding grammar as something almost akin to a science. I was involved heavily in English during my school years, writing for my school newspaper at Northern Guilford High School and providing consultations at the Writing Center at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, where I discussed essays and other writing-intensive assignments one-on-one with both undergrads and graduate students as I earned my own English degree.
It was during my time working at my university's Writing Center that I realized language can be understood equally by everyone, as long as it's explained properly. Everyone learns differently, but the material is all the same. This is one of the reasons I am so confident in tutoring: nobody really lacks an ability to improve their reading and writing skills. We all just have different locks. I'm excited to help my students figure out their individual methods of excelling in English.
On the artsy side of English, I am experienced in reading, writing, and analyzing prose, poetry, and drama; on the technical side, I have in-depth understanding of elements such as grammar and academic citations. I also have some experience with ESL students and am able to explain English concepts in straightforward and intuitive ways for readers and writers struggling with the language.
English can be weird, but it can be made sense of! If you're struggling with the reason why I didn't say "if YOUR struggling," or if you feel daunted by writing projects or reading assignments, I can help!

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.
At the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, I worked at the University Writing Center with fellow students, helping them with their essays and other writing projects. During these sessions, we focused on whichever elements the writer was struggling with, such as grammar, structure, ideas, and so forth. I have read hundreds of essays side-by-side with the students who wrote them.
