About Haley

I have a BA in English and Political Science from a top liberal arts college and I recently completed a graduate degree at Columbia University. I specialize in helping students compose and polish academic essays, perform data analysis in excel, and refine public speaking skills.

Writing: I have experience successfully assisting others to improve college admissions essays, public policy memoranda, research papers, and literature analysis essays. I also have extensive professional editing experience as Editor-in-Chief of a small, independent newspaper, among other journalism experiences, and as a consultant writing final research papers for clients. Given this experience, I'm well versed in helping people of diverse backgrounds, goals, and skills levels produce their best writing.

Excel: As a full-time consultant, I use excel on a daily basis. From logical tests (example, "if" statements), to analysis (pivot tables, v-look up), to data visualization I can help you learn to navigate Excel with ease. I work primarily by first explaining different functions and then providing time and exercises to practice. I find that with Excel, hands-on work is the best way to familiarize and become comfortable with the program.

Public Speaking: I have leveraged my public speaking skills both academically as a competitive debater and public speaker and professionally as a consultant. My approach is practice makes perfect and having a low-pressure atmosphere to practice and receive feedback is key to improving public speaking skills. I also help with developing good preparation skills and other tricks to make you more confident and polished.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

English

I graduated with honors from a top liberal arts college with a BA in English. I also have experience working with students (mostly high school) to improve essays and develop good writing processes.

Literature

At my college I primarily enjoyed classes on English and Russian literature. As an avid reader, this is one of my favorite subjects to teach.

Microsoft Excel

I received a semester of formal training in excel while completing my graduate degree in Development Economics. I also use excel regularly for my job and can teach both the basics of manipulating data, building databases, and advanced functions/pivot tables.

Proofreading

I have extensive experience as Editor-In-Chief of my college newspaper and as a writing tutor proof-reading and assisting in the overall improvement of academic essays and journalism pieces.

Public Speaking

In high school, I participated in the debate team for 3 years. During this time I won many medals, including ranking among the top state extemporaneous speakers and cross-examination debaters. As a graduate student, public presentations are an integral part of my class work as I study public policy.

As a professional, I have presented to senior management and received recognition from my supervisors as an excellent public speaker.

Writing

My primary tutoring experience has been working with high school, college, and masters level students to write and refine academic essays. I focus not only on the writing, grammar, and punctuation but also the clarity and logic on the point of view. This is my favorite subject to tutor.
