About Clare

I am a current graduate student (Master of Arts) living in southeast Missouri. My work as a teaching assistant allowed me to tutor extensively at the Southeast Missouri State University Center for Writing Excellence, where I assisted a myriad of students with cover letters, research essays, expository writing, narrative and creative work, resumes, study skills, brainstorming, thesis development, and more. Additionally, I have taught four consecutive semesters of college composition (I and II)—that's over 125 students! In my spare time, I love to write (specifically poetry), surf the Internet, and read. I hope to share my passions/hobbies with others, and, above all, I find it highly rewarding to assist students with any questions they may have (about writing, English, or otherwise!).

I am confident in my ability to assist upper-level high school and college students (freshmen and up) with writing assignments/exercises, writing tips, reading improvement, close reading, literary theory/criticism, literature, communication, presentations, and any creative activities. As I begin my PhD work this fall, I believe my extensive teaching background and that my work with a diverse student body (both domestic and international) make me a highly qualified tutor who is able to connect with a wide variety of individuals and effectively explain writing/essay concepts to others.

Feel free to contact me to learn more about my specializations and my schedule! I am available to tutor online or in person.

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

My experience working as a graduate assistant within Southeast Missouri State University's English department makes me a highly qualified tutor in English. Having instructed college composition for four semesters, I have had the privilege of teaching a diverse student body in reading, writing, analysis, and research. Additionally, my own graduate coursework in literature, theory, and pedagogy have greatly prepared me for such a task.

Regents

Having passed the New York State Regents Exam in English with a 100%, I believe that I can successfully tutor students seeking advice on how to manage the exam and work through its various nuances.

Study Skills

Having successfully completed a Bachelor of Arts in English and Anthropology, as well as a Master of Arts in Professional Writing, I believe my academic experiences qualify me to provide guidance on how to effectively study, manage time, and successfully work through collegiate and secondary-level coursework. I believe my own study routine would be an effective teaching tool, and with my 4.00 GPA I feel that it has most certainly worked for me!

Writing

I have had a wealth of experience tutoring writing for Southeast Missouri State University. Having worked at the university's Center for Writing Excellence, I have assisted students with a variety of writing projects, including (but not limited to): essay writing, research, brainstorming, outlining, masters theses, resumes, cover letters, expository essays, and reflections. Additionally, I have instructed four semesters of college writing (composition I and II) and have successfully engaged over 130 students with writing activities meant to challenge their creativity on a wealth of topics.
