My interest in teaching and tutoring stems from a lifelong love of learning. Having completed a Senior Thesis for Honors in the Discipline for my history major, I understand the value of hard work and dedication, and the need for support from others.
In college, I specialized in tutoring Writing, and Western Civilization I and II with Elizabethtown College's Learning Services Office. Whether we worked on study skills, editing, or brainstorming, my goal with each session was to challenge students in their perceived weak areas without overwhelming them. I did not edit their papers for them or assign them additional homework, but offered strategies and suggested courses of practice to help them continue to improve. We were expected to provide assessments and progress reports after each session.
I spent three years tutoring college students in writing, literature, history, and research. As a dual major in English and History, I developed many skills that translated well to a tutoring environment, including editing, brainstorming, outlining, research acquisition, studying, and knowledge of much of the subject material, citation styles, and research methods.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success in your studies! My interest in teaching and tutoring stems from a lifelong love of learning.
