Xavier University (English)
I have graduated from Xavier University in December of 2015 with a B.A. degree in English and minors in writing and media studies. During my college career, I took a course called Composition Tutoring to become qualified to work at the James A. Glenn Writing Center at Xavier University. I have been trained in composition theory and methods of one-to-one tutoring. While working at the Writing Center, provided assistance to students, including many freshman college students, nontraditional college students, grad students, professors and even those whose second language was English, at all stages of the writing process for various subject matter and wrote articles for the Writing Center’s biannual newsletters and blog for students. My favorite part about tutoring is getting able to work with budding writers and help them improve upon their writing skills.
Besides writing tutor experience, I have served as the assistant editor for an Organization of Greater Cincinnati where I edited high school students’ theater reviews prior to publication and supported the program editor in assessment of critic reviews prior to submission for publication. I have also held internships as an editorial intern at a publishing company and a communications intern for the Sustainability program at Xavier.
I am an outstanding English tutor because I have taken an abundance of writing and literature courses fulfilling the requirements for my English degree. I finished my college career with a 3.8 GPA. Furthermore, I have experience and training as a writing tutor and an editor with expert knowledge of MLA, CMS, and APA style formatting guidelines. I also have a passion for writing and helping others. However, it is my sense of humor and ability to put people at ease that makes me uniquely qualified as an English tutor.

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.
