About Stevie

Do you need help writing a college admissions essay? How about a proofreader for your final essay? What about help understanding that tricky book your English teacher assigned? Do you need help preparing for a major test? Does your elementary student need help with phonics?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, I’m the tutor for you!

I am an award-winning journalist with a passion for the English language. I graduated with a B.A. in Journalism from Texas Tech University and immediately entered the exciting world of reporting. The hours of a journalist, however, became more difficult to manage as my personal life evolved. Today, I do public affairs for an organization in Lubbock, but my love for writing is still intact.

My experience in journalism and a lifetime of writing competitions has made me an expert in essay writing, proof reading, grammar and basic reading skills.

I am available every evening and all day on Saturday and Sunday. I can generally accommodate short notice sessions, though I do require a 24-hour cancellation policy. If you are unable to make a scheduled tutoring session, I am always willing to reschedule.

I prefer to hold sessions in a quiet location like a public library, but I am willing to go wherever you are most comfortable.

I hold myself and my students to a very high standard, but in a relaxed and fun manner.

I look forward to working with you to reach your academic goals!

Ready? Let's do this. Send me a message, so that we can get our next tutoring session on the books!

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.

ACT English

I have experience in writing and editing at a professional level as well as experience tutoring students for this exam.

ACT Reading

I am an award winning journalist with experience with the ACT. I tutored several of peers in preparation for the exam in high school.

American History

Other than taking advanced history classes throughout my educational career, I am also required to have a working knowledge of American history for my current position in legislative affairs.

Anthropology

I minored in Anthropology in college.

English

Award winning journalist with B.A. in mass communication

Government & Politics

I worked as a political journalist for more than a year and currently work in legislative affairs for my organization.

Grammar

My background is in journalism and has helped me to develop a strong understanding of grammar rules. I have experience editing my own work as well as that of my colleagues.

Literature

I am an avid reader and writer. In college, I took multiple courses on the classics and even a few on non-fiction.

Political Science

As a political reporter, I was required to have a working knowledge of the political system and a deep understanding of how past events, laws and regulations impact today's political climate. In my current position in legislative affairs, I am required to have that same knowledge so that I can effectively push for productive laws to be passed.

Proofreading

My background is in journalism which required me to be able to proofread not only my own work but also that of my colleagues.

Public Speaking

I have taken several public speaking courses throughout my educational career. In high school, I competed in speech and debate competitions in which I won multiple. I also won theater awards. In my current job, I'm able to utilize my past experience to conduct press conferences and participate in live radio/TV interviews.

Reading

I am an avid reader and writer. I have worked with multiple students on understanding passages, short stories and novels using various techniques.

SAT Reading

The reading portion of the SAT requires a broad vocabulary and a mastery of grammar--I possess both. My background in writing has helped me to develop an extensive vocabulary as well as the ability to spot errors in grammar and content in passages.

SAT Writing

As a professional writer, I am very familiar with the grammatical knowledge needed to succeed in the writing portion of the SAT. I have experience tutoring other students in this subject.

Theater

I have taken several theater courses and competed in multiple competitions, including UIL. I won several awards during that time, most notably "Best Actress" in a regional competition. I am familiar with most acting techniques and script writing.

Writing

I have multiple writing awards from my time as a journalist. I have also taken multiple writing courses throughout my educational career. In college, I helped my peers to organize and develop essays before proofreading the final draft.
