Bio

I got my start tutoring last year on an entirely online platform, and have since branched out to provide in-home tutoring as well as online tutoring. I offer help with pretty much all English and language arts subjects. At Macalester College, I majored in English while minoring in psychology, so I am very experienced with all aspects of essay writing and can also help with research papers for social studies courses.

I got my start tutoring last year on an entirely online platform, and have since branched out to provide in-home tutoring as well as online tutoring. I offer help with pretty much all English and language arts subjects. At Macalester College, I majored in English while minoring in psychology, so I am very experienced with all aspects of essay writing and can also help with research papers for social studies courses. My college coursework was rigorous, and I learned quite a bit about how to analyze text and write strong papers. I will gladly work with students at all academic levels.

I first started tutoring last fall at Tutor.com. That was intense! My students ranged from second grade through graduate school. I also helped adult learners who were either returning to school or trying to write better work e-mails and resumes. Essay writing sessions made up about 60% of my work day at Tutor.com. I helped students to write better, more organized essays, and to avoid common problems like sentence fragments, run-on sentences, the dreaded comma splice, and misplaced modifiers. I help with all kinds of writing assignments including literary analysis essays, annotated bibliographies, research papers, narrative essays, personal essays, argumentative essays, college admissions essays, letters, and short stories. The other 30% of my day was spent helping students understand and interpret literature, successfully complete grammar worksheets, and prepare for the English and reading portions of the ACT and SAT.

I left Tutor.com in April and I am now happy to serve in-home clients as well as online clients. Lately I have been helping a wide variety of students including a high school senior who is writing college application essays, a high school junior who is struggling in English, and a sixth grader who has great ideas and is working on crafting stronger sentences with those ideas. I have experience working with children as young as five and am also happy to help adult learners.

I am an outstanding tutor because I genuinely enjoy reading and writing. Many times, discouraged students feel that reading and writing are "boring" or "too hard." My goal is to help empower students so that they believe in their own capabilities and can therefore have a better time in present or future English courses.

I have very open availability right now. Let me know when you would like to meet, and we'll go from there!
