About Renee

I graduated summa cum laude with a Spanish degree from the University of North Texas. I also accidentally ended up with an English minor because I took so many literature and writing courses for fun. I often assisted peers in revising their essays, and in some cases, building an idea into a well-supported thesis with organized arguments. I also worked as a volunteer Spanish tutor through the university Learning Center, and helped students by explaining, reinforcing, and practicing grammar and vocabulary they had learned in class.

I enjoy working with others and helping them discover new connections in the material and build new skills. Writing and Spanish are two skills that have shaped me as a person, allowed me to travel and communicate, and opened doors to employment opportunities. Therefore, I find it especially rewarding to see others progress in these areas.

I am a non-native Spanish-speaker who has achieved fluency, so I understand the difficulties and frustrations of language acquisition. I also fully appreciate the whole new world of connections with people, literature, and cultures that opens up when one learns a new language. I do best in reinforcing material students have learned in class, assisting in studying and practicing, and helping with test review. I am also fully fluent, so I can be a conversation partner for students of any level. I also revise essays and writing in Spanish.

I enjoy every aspect of writing, and can help with anything from grammar revision to organizing essays to building a strong thesis and argument. I specialize in literary analysis, but I also have experience in creative, technical, and scientific writing. I can help with accessing, organizing, and citing research. I also do essay revisions with comments through email.

I have relatively low rates because I am new to Wyzant, and would like to build up a reputation. Feel free to contact me, and if we both feel I would be a good fit as a tutor, we can schedule a time to meet.

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.

Literature

Throughout high school and college, I have excelled in both regular and honors literature courses. In college, I intentionally sought out the toughest English professors, because I knew they had the most to teach me. I ended my undergrad by embarking on a year-long project to write an honors capstone thesis on literature. I can help with every step of literary analysis.
