Francis Marion University (English and Spanish)
My name is Richard Brown, but I go by Trey in most situations. I'm from a small town in Georgia originally, but moved to SC just 9 years ago. I've been passionate about English since I was a child, and I've always wanted to be a teacher. I'm currently on track to go to graduate school in the new few years and begin my journey to acquiring a PhD in English. In my off time I am a poet and an author.
I've been a tutor and a TA at the University level for a year now and am looking for a way to make some more money over the Summer. I'm glad to give every bit of help I can to struggling students in any field of English, but literature and argument are my specialties.
My expertise in grammar has been honed since I was a child, and I am an avid reader of literature, having taken several courses on the subject. I have extensive knowledge of literary theory for an undergraduate and have experience proof-reading papers for proper research techniques, grammar, and good writer's voice.
Overall, I hope you consider me as a tutor. If you have any questions please contact me here through my Wyzant account with the nature of the lesson you need and a way to get in touch with you and I'll get back to you as fast as possible.

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.
I've taught as an undergraduate teaching assistant for the last year. I'm an English major with a 4.0 Major GPA, and I have never had any trouble keeping that grade up. I'll gladly work with students the way I do at university, with respect and care.
Once again I must mention my experience teaching. My job revolves around watching out for grammar errors by my students and helping them deal with the errors they've made. Usually we work together to ensure that errors of the same type are not made again. Typically, students tell me that I've helped them improve their grammar.
I serve on the board of a literary arts journal at my university as the poetry editor. I've also taken multiple literary theory courses in several schools of thought including Formalism, Post-Modernism and several identity-based theories. In my literature survey courses I have read the likes of Browning, Dickins, Poe, Cather, Mccarthy and others.
I, in private, am an author and poet. I also serve on the board for a literary art journal at my university. Finally, I'm also a tutor at the university, working with several college-level students on their papers, reading and proofreading them.
