Lane Community College (English)
Hello! I've been working as writing tutor at Lane Community College since the 2013 Fall Term. On a day to day basis I use a variety of tutoring techniques to encourage students to critically think and discuss their essay topics. I use both facilitative and directive commentary to enable students to fulfill their writing potential. I diagnose issues with the thesis sentence, structure, logic, paragraphs, style, and grammar. I help students develop essay topics, thesis statements, and arguments. I advise students in study habits, editing techniques, and writing processes. I work hard to create a comfortable and safe environment where all ideas can be expressed fully. I always want to make sure that the student can achieve their writing goals.
I have always loved writing. My grandma was an English teacher, and she sparked my interest in both writing and literature at an early age. In high school, that love of writing got me on to the school's newspaper staff as a feature writer. In my senior year I was promoted to editor and chief, which I found both challenging and fun. Now at Lane, I have been given the amazing opportunity to be a tutor in the Writing Center. I absolutely love this job! Students come in with their own stories, writing styles, and problems. I have a great time helping them wade through their own writing processes. The question I receive most often is, "Does that make sense?" I find it immensely satisfying to help students make their opinions, stories, and beliefs clear and concise. I am helping people express themselves and what is important to them, and I am so thankful for that opportunity. I look forward to using my experience at Lane to help you or your child with both their writing and reading needs. Hello!

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.
I have been working as a tutor for the Lane Community College English department for the last year. I m also majoring in English. I have received A's in all my English and writing courses.
As a tutor at LCC, I have received training in grammar. I have helped many students with grammar assignments from the WR80 course, which is a completely grammar oriented class. I help students with grammar on a daily basis.
