About Genevieve

For me, writing is the sort of passion that needs to be expressed and shared. The passion started when I was in middle school, where I began writing creative fiction, journals, poems, songs, or, really, anything with words! From there the passion only grew. I began as an English Major at the University of North Georgia in 2012, where my love of writing was not only encouraged but, more importantly, developed and improved by a host of diverse courses taught by incredible professors. In 2014 I started as a Writing Tutor at the University's Writing Center, where it's been a complete pleasure to work one-on-one with students and their writing.

Although Writing is my area of focus, and where I have the most background in tutoring, general English skills are an area I can work with students on. Whether this means ACT/SAT preparation or vocabulary and grammar help, I'm there! In addition to this, I have a French minor, so anyone looking for French help can contact me.

As an English Major at the University of North Georgia, I've taken both Standard and Advanced English Grammar courses. I received an A in both classes. Besides this, I've had a lifelong love of grammar and writing mechanics.

I'm available Friday through Sunday, and even evenings on most weekdays, so contact me to make an appointment today!

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.

English

I have a passion for English and the writing process. At the Writing Center where I'm employed, I work with students at every stage of the writing process from invention and brainstorming to editing and proofreading. I can help students with content-level problems (like organization), and I can also help with sentence-level problems (grammar, punctuation, and so on).

Grammar

I've had a lifelong love of grammar. In addition to this, however, at the University of North Georgia, I not only passed but made an A in an Advanced English Grammar course taught by Dr. Joyce Stavick.

Extremely Helpful — Gen was extremely helpful in her approach to helping me formulate my essay. I learned tangible ways to go about structuring my essay. For example, reading allowed, seperating each sentence in the paragraph and highlight common ideas in the same color to watch for redundancies. She suggested various writing styles that I could pick from and use, how to pick apart my paragraphs systematically and ...
