About Seth

I began tutoring as an undergraduate student, after a semester of an intensive English tutoring course that included reading, writing, revising, peer tutoring, and tutoring in the college writing center. I worked for two years one-on-one with students not only to improve their writing, but to increase their critical thinking skills and to instill confidence in their own voice. I tutored a variety of students, including many students for whom English was not a first language. After college I taught literature, public speaking, persuasive writing, critical reading, and Bible to junior high and high school students at a small classical Christian school. There, I continued to work individually with my students on their writing assignments. I am currently a student at Westminster Theological Seminary, where I'll be continuing to hone my own writing abilities as I pursue a master's degree.

I love the English language. I love to help others learn to read, think, write, and speak more effectively. But more than this, I love to see them determine to work hard, gain understanding, and to use it for good. I would be glad to work with you! If you have questions about different subjects, concentrations, or tutoring methods, please let me know.

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.

Bible Studies

I grew up learning about the Bible, and have both taught Bible at the high school level and in various churches. I am currently pursuing my Master of Divinity at Westminster Theological Seminary, where the study of the Bible is the core of the curriculum.

English

I have a combined three years of experience helping students to improve their writing and gain confidence in their voice.
