About Whitney

I earned my Master of Arts in linguistics from Louisiana State University in 2008. As a GTA at LSU, I taught ESL grammar and composition to students ranging in age from 16 to 48 through the LSU English Language and Orientation Program. After completing my MA, I taught ESL composition to both undergraduate and graduate students at LSU for 4.5 years.

In addition to my master's degree, I completed an online TESOL certification in 2009.

Education: Master's degree in linguistics from Louisiana State University.

Experience: I taught ESL composition for a total of 5.5 years; I taught ESL grammar for one year. While teaching at LSU, I consistently received high evaluation scores from both students and peers.

Credentials: TESOL certificate.

Please contact me for more information about my experience and teaching style. I look forward to hearing from you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ESL/ESOL

I taught ESL composition for five and a half years and ESL grammar for one year. During this time, I taught students to write essays ranging from analysis to synthesis. Essay types included comparison/contrast, problem/solution, narrative, critical analysis, and argument synthesis. I met individually with all students to discuss content, mechanics, and citations.

Since my time as an ESL instructor, I have edited doctoral dissertations and scholarly articles for former students.

I met individually with all students to discuss content, grammar, mechanics, and citations.

Since my time as an English instructor, I have edited doctoral dissertations and scholarly articles for former students. Because these dissertation topics were beyond the scope of my expertise, my primary task was correcting grammar.

Proofreading

I have edited and proofread doctoral dissertations and scholarly articles for former students.

Writing

I taught ESL composition for 5.5 years. During this time, I taught students to write essays ranging from analysis to synthesis. Essay types included comparison/contrast, problem/solution, narrative, critical analysis, and argument synthesis. I met individually with all students to discuss content, mechanics, and citations.

While I am no longer an ESL instructor, I still actively engage in writing as a PhD student. Furthermore, since my time as an ESL instructor, I have edited doctoral dissertations and scholarly articles for former students.
