I have lived on an Amish farm; worked as a machine operator for the Eaton Corporation; waited on tables; worked as a tableside cook; studied eastern philosophy and medicine; spray painted for Electro Powerpacs; gardened for the Philbrook Museum of Art; sung for the popular local band Confederate Alchemy; and produced, acted in, and/or directed dozens of theatrical and performance art productions in venues from Miami FL to Boston, MA to Cleveland, OH; to NYC off-Broadway; to Tulsa, OK. But I ended up an attorney specializing in employment and consumer law.
There are many other experiences that I might be able to list, but the important point to take from my background is that I will not be focused so narrowly on the academic bark and leaves that I remain oblivious in my teaching to the wealth that is to be had from the forest of the mind.
On the other hand, I completed a master's degree in Modern Letters (a fancy way of saying English literature and academic writing), and spent another five years working towards a PhD in the same subject. During that time, I taught English and writing at the University of Tulsa to incoming freshmen, so am fully conversant with what is required to teach the subject matter. For students even a small bit interested in the subject, or otherwise willing to learn, I can produce the results they seek.
Even if you don't choose me, I'd be happy to hear from you. A quick conversation will probably tell you whether we are a comfortable fit.

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.
