About Holly

Hello,

My name is Holly, and I have a Master of Arts in English from New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, NM, and a Bachelor of Arts in English from Lamar University in Beaumont, TX. I taught freshman composition and sophomore British and American literature for fifteen years.

My primary areas of instruction include description/narration, process analysis, exemplification, and argument/persuasion essays and literary analysis papers. I will also assist with the writing process itself--from brainstorming, to drafting, to revising and proofing--and with grammar. And I have tutored individuals within the capacities of Interim Writing Center Director and Writing Center Consultant.

I've also served as a Managing Editor of a small publication published by Lamar and as an Associate Editor during my graduate studies. So, I can help with those pesky editorial details and with technical writing in general as well.

Finally, I am currently a literacy instructor: I tutor individuals pursuing their GED and teach ESL and ABE courses.

I've always been an advocate for my students and have done my utmost to help them succeed. While I won't complete work for you, I will work with you as much as you need. So, let's get started!

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.
