About Oakley

I'm currently completing my undergraduate degree at Brown University, where I am a senior (class of 2017). I'm majoring in English, but developing an independent thesis on the cognitive processes involved in literary storytelling. I am currently writing an honors thesis on this topic. I have taken advanced courses in the English, Comparative Literature, History, Philosophy, and Cognitive Science departments. Brown, however, emphasizes a liberal arts education, so I have also taken classes in many other departments. I have refined essay-writing skills and would be happy to send a sample. I also have first-hand knowledge of the college admissions process, especially regarding college essay writing and English standardized testing. I went through the process just years ago and was admitted to my top school, early decision.

I have experience working with teenagers at the summer camp where I have worked. Last May, I worked in Vancouver for a language revitalization program based out of a Native American reservation. This required me to teach language skills to the members of the community. It was particularly rewarding to work with a language on the verge of extinction, however, I also enjoyed the opportunity to refine the educational skills that I use when tutoring.

As a tutor, I am most interested and qualified to offer help with essay writing, English/reading skills, college advising, and other types of liberal arts based studies, but I am open other areas as well. Please feel free to reach out and ask any further questions.
