I believe in tutoring because I have personally experienced the value of a good tutor. When I began studying English during my undergraduate years, my teachers weren't sure if I had the skill set to be an effective writer. In fact, I failed my first English paper, and one of my professors asked me to stay after class so she could evaluate if I was willing to put in the hard work to become a successful English major. For the next 5 months, I received personal tutoring for my writing, working relentlessly to grow. By the end of the semester, that same professor asked me to tutor other students because I had experienced so much growth. Her personal influence and encouragement directly contributed to my success as a writer and eventually a teacher (I was later hired as a GSA). After completing my Bachelor of Arts in English (Cum Laude), I worked toward and received my Master of Arts in English (High Distinction) from Liberty University. During my two years as a Master's student, I taught 8 sections of Freshman English Composition and substituted in other upper-level writing classes (Literature Survey/ Poetry/ Creative Writing).
I love working one-on-one with students and inspiring them to claim their own education.

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.
