-Purdue University, West lafayette (Creative Writing)
I have always written as part of a community. For the last nine years, I've stayed active in various literature-sharing websites and social media, reading and editing peer work and growing my own voice. I understand the importance of good communication, of a second set of eyes just to help you catch the things you might have missed. Hands down, the best part of my college experience was getting one-on-one time with my teachers to discuss my work.
I met with professors whenever I could, and many were more than willing to look over early paper drafts so that I understood the material better and exactly what they wanted my work to show.
Writing and reading, and writing about reading; these are all things I'm very passionate about, and I'd love to share my passion and knowledge with others. I've had good teachers to lead by example, and bad teachers to show just how important a good one can be; I'm analytical, compassionate, and overall dedication to the craft and consumption of writing. Whether it's fiction writing, poetry, or literature papers, I'm your girl to get through it.
As I mentioned in my tagline, my mother was an elementary education teacher and a huge influence on my life. Thanks to her example - and from extensive experience with peer reviewing both in various online communities and from my bachelor's at Purdue - I have a strong understanding in how to critique without criticizing, build up without tearing down, and communicate both strengths and weaknesses of the work.
I have over seven years of experience in Photoshop CS3 as well as in other similar programs such a Paint Tool SAI. I'm primarily a digital painter and illustrator more than I am a photo editor, but I'm familiar enough with the program that I can assist people in finding how to do what they need with it.

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.
