About Debra

Hello! I'm a recent graduate of The Ohio State University - Newark; I majored in English with a creative writing minor. I also have an undergraduate degree in Geological Sciences from OSU Columbus, so I have some background in geology and mathematics. While a student, I worked at OSU - Newark as a Peer Writing Consultant, which means I have experience conducting one-on-one tutoring sessions with students about their writing projects as well as having spent time in the classroom working with students alongside their instructors. It is rewarding for me to see students' projects grow from just a seed of an idea to a fully-realized research paper, and I'm there to assist them every step of the way - from brainstorming ideas to organizing sentences and paragraphs to final edits and completion of their projects. I've also had several tutoring assignments with English as a Second Language (ESL) students, so I am familiar with their particular challenges and needs as they master their English writing skills.

The tutoring assignment usually begins with an assessment of skills and an in-depth review of the student's needs, as reflected by direct interview(s), writing samples, and any previous writing projects that may provide insight into opportunities for enrichment in the English language arts.

I look forward to assisting new students with their writing projects!

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.

Study Skills

I'm currently a senior in college working toward a degree in English with research distinction and a minor in creative writing. I have a previous bachelor's degree in geological sciences. I also work as a peer writing consultant and tutor at the Writer's Studio at OSU Newark. I feel qualified to tutor students and help them with study skills because I have been very successful adapting to different methods of teaching throughout my college career. Instructors' expectations can vary greatly, and it is in any student's best interest to learn to adapt. I can help students develop the skills they need to manage their study time and to learn to identify and focus on the most important elements of the course content. I can also assist in creating a daily routine for maximum success during a semester. I emphasize to the students I tutor the value of reviewing course material daily, taking appropriate notes, and becoming familiar with the concepts so that they can avoid the pitfalls of procrastination and "cramming" for exams.
