N/A (Graduate Coursework)
My name is Marlenia and I love the power of writing. I've been writing long before I knew the technical aspects of it or even words. I'm a recent graduate from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a bachelor's of journalism. I majored in broadcasting and news-editorial with a minor political science and two concentrations: English and history. I have experience writing for newspapers, newsletters, websites and broadcast TV and radio.
As a student of the J-School (the journalism college), writing mechanics like sentence structure and grammar were hammered into my head.
I love writing and the art of communication. However, I love seeing people reach their highest potential especially if I can help them get there. For example, I volunteer every other Tuesday at my church to help students with their homework. In addition, every Sunday night I volunteer with a local ministry as a writing team assistant where I help teenagers in the Lincoln area express themselves through writing as well as help develop and strengthen their writing skills. I'd love to help your student as well if the ever opportunity presents itself.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
Best of luck, young scholar!

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.
