About Darlene

I have recently earned my Master's Degree in Writing with a concentration in New Media. My thesis is called Online Faces and Online Spaces and explores identity in online spaces, such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and the video game World of Warcraft. I took classes such as Internet and Writing Studies, American English Grammar, and Assessment of Writing, which have all diversified my understanding of writing and composition.

I'd love to help other students succeed in writing and learn how to use techniques of composition to make their writing fun and easy. I also took a class called Tutoring Writing and learned a few techniques to tutor. I think communication is very important in the process of composing a piece, and will work hard to assure that the student and I are on the same page. Not only do I want to create a great final written piece, but I also want to help the student learn how to better understand the theories and techniques of writing and composition.

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.

General Computer

I am proficient in Mac and Window OS, and desktop and laptop software.

I've grown up with computers, so I've had a lot of experience tinkering and playing with them. I love figuring out my way around a new computer and learning all the tricks.

HTML

I know a bit of HTML -- mostly from a class called Internet Writing Studies. If I don't know a command, it's easy to figure out. Oh, I created and maintain my own website. I use Wordpress, and a template design, but I go in and tamper with the CSS and HTML sheets to get what I want.

Microsoft Word

Microsoft Word is the quintessential word processing software program, and is used by many writers in many different stages. I can teach the novice how to better navigate the program, and I can teach the advanced user new tricks to make his/her experience with Word better, faster, and more rewarding.

I can answer questions like How do I make this in landscape mode? How can I quickly make this paragraph look like the first one? But not change the text in between. How do I see more than one page? How can I change the default text? And more questions that I can't anticipate!

Writing

I have a MA in Writing with a concentration in New Media. I know different techniques for all stages of writing: brainstorming, outlining, fleshing, writing, editing, writing... and so forth. I know many of the theories to help writers in their process.

I've also tried many different genres of writing, so if you aren't sure if I can help. Just ask for more information!
