Pacific Lutheran University (English)
Thanks for taking a a look at my profile. I'm a private tutor based in the Portland area specializing in English, reading and writing primarily at the high school and college level, though I also work with adult learners. I have taught writing classes at the Pacific Northwest College of Art and, as a volunteer, have facilitated writing workshops for at alternative high schools, in County jails and elsewhere.
My tutoring philosophy is to allow the client to determine their goals or desired outcomes, and respond with personalized lesson plans that are both practical and interesting. Combining a mix of written exercises and dialogue about writing concepts, I help each client achieve their specific goals, while also fostering their individual identity as a learner and thinker.
Personally, I am a third-generation Oregonian, a poet, a lover of the outdoors, and someone who enjoys seeing people learn and master concepts they once found daunting. I look forward to working with you (or your child) to excel in English, reading and writing skills. Thanks for taking a a look at my profile.

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.
