Penn State University (Professional Writing)
Hello! My name is Kara, and I'm recent graduate of Penn State University's Berks campus. I have a BA in Professional Writing and a minor in English. Additionally, I spent almost three years working as a tutor at the Penn State Berks Writing Center, and I absolutely loved it!
As a lifelong writer and reader, I'm passionate about educating others in these fields, helping them to become a more expressive writer and critical reader. Before becoming a tutor, I completed a rigorous training course and subsequent interview process. In the past years, I have attended numerous tutoring conferences across the country, presenting at both the International Writing Center Association (IWCA) Conference in San Diego, California and the National Peer Tutoring Conference in Tampa, Florida.
I have worked with many different people during my time at the Writing Center ranging from college freshmen to senior citizens. I believe that anyone can become a great, confident writer if they are given the proper encouragement! I will work with you to help strengthen your skills and build your confidence as a writer.
Currently, I am available to tutor on Wednesdays, Thursdays, select Fridays, and weekends. I prefer to arrange a meeting place at a local Starbucks or a similar establishment if possible. 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.
