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.

English

In addition to holding graduate degrees in English, I have taught English composition, language, and literature since the mid-2000s. Further, I successfully conduct literary research. This all combines to afford me superior expertise in the use of English.

Grammar

Over the past few years, I have taught multiple sections of remedial and developmental English, first-year composition, and technical writing each term. This has been in addition to my own work to publish research writing. As such, I have developed superior proficiency in identifying deviations from Standard Edited American English.

Literature

The coursework and exams from my graduate studies cover Old and Middle English literature, early modern English literature, early American literature, and contemporary fantasy literature of the US and UK. In addition, I have taught collegiate English literature courses since the mid-2000s. Further, I successfully conduct literary research.

Microsoft Word

Through writing thousands of pages of text for coursework and ongoing research, I have developed an excellent working knowledge of Word. I have used it in my teaching, as well, both in preparing teaching materials and in assessing student work. Further, I have coached a number of students in how to use Word.

Public Speaking

I have taught college-level public speaking courses since 2010. In addition, I have given a number of formal research presentations at regional and international scholarly conferences. These have included the South Central Modern Language Association conference and the International Congress on Medieval Studies. In each, I have been praised for my lucidity of presentation and clarity of speech.

Reading

I hold a PhD in English, which I could only gain from many long hours spent poring over texts to uncover the ideas concealed within them. I have continued the doctoral work in literary research presented at regional and international conferences. Too, I have taught basic reading skills at the collegiate level.

Vocabulary

The focus of my study affords me expertise in the development of English. This has helped me to understand the ways in which English takes in and develops new words. In addition, my classroom teaching experience has included explicit instruction in vocabulary for a number of years, now, so that I am abundantly qualified to help develop understanding of vocabulary.

Writing

I have written thousands, if not tens of thousands, of pages of papers for classes, papers for publication, entries for formal and informal blogs, fiction, poetry, and freelance orders. The experience of doing so has done much to improve my understanding of writing processes, which I am happy to share with clients.
