I am eager to utilize my talents to fulfill the position tutor. My varied and extensive experience makes me uniquely suited for this opportunity. In current freelancing positions, I author and edit a wide variety of text, fashioning each piece to suit the population served. For example, I compose text for each website of the companies involved with the Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center (MMTC).
I write web and advertising copy, newsletters, and more for RJ Michaels, a company I worked for full-time in Michigan. I edited and designed membership newsletters for The Michigan Botanical Club; wrote and edited the Annual Report for the Annis Water Resources Institute; and wrote and edited Exchange Today, a quarterly magazine with a circulation of 20,000. Of course, I also like to have fun in my work. I love craft beer; I was a correspondent for the Michigan Beer Guide for five years, and I recently authored the website for a downtown Toledo brewery.
In my position at RJ Michaels, and previously at Sharp Marketing, I developed marketing copy for both print and electronic media, including press releases, outdoor marketing, radio, web text and newsletter copy. At RJ Michaels, I was active in campaign creation and brainstorming, and was heavily involved in promoting the company and its clients through social media.
As the editor of two magazines – Cosmopolitan Home magazine and Jackson Magazine – I set the tone for the publications, ensured that content was accurate and compelling, wrote and edited articles, developed themes and topics for each issue, and fostered relationships with local businesses. Cosmopolitan Home is a glossy monthly magazine focusing on high-end architecture, fine dining, and enjoying the finer things in life. At both publications, I evidenced strong time management skills, implementing rigorous deadlines and managing multiple projects with varying timelines at once.
I am well organized and have over 10 years of writing experience. I look forward to hearing from you soon. I have a lifelong love of writing, editing, and the English language.

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.
