I'm a 20-year veteran of the newspaper industry who worked with headline writing, editing of body copy and pagination. That experience, along with my education has helped me to reach goals and milestones in life. During my time as an undergraduate student I did not tutor; however, I did attend both community colleges, private, and public universities which gave me insight into the various different purposes and audiences that exist in all those settings. After completing my BA in English, I continued on as a graduate student and was afforded the opportunity to make contact and connections through tutoring, test preparation courses, and teaching.
I have worked with early college high school students as a teaching assistant for first year composition and also in first year transitional programs. My experience also includes teaching sophomore-level literature core courses, TSI prep courses, and as an instructor of record for ENGL 1301/1302 and online ENGL 1302 courses. Finally, I have worked with high school students in one-on-one settings to prepare them for ACT and SAT testing. One of my former pupils whom I assisted with SAT prep went on to improve his critical reading score by 50 points, and earned an 11 on the essay section. The result was that he scored a 2100 overall and was accepted to the medical school program of his choice.
I have edited American English, journalism, grammar, proofreading, syntax, vocabulary, Standard Academic English, rhetoric, composition theory.
