About Cavyn

I graduated Magna Cum Laude with B.A. in English with a concentration in Writing and Rhetoric. I also graduated with a Distinguished Honors Scholar Award, the highest given by the Honors College, for completing 15 hours of Honors level course-work and an undergraduate thesis. I have been a writing tutor for the past year at Weatherford College. My tutoring experience influenced my decision to attend graduate school in the future with the end goal of teaching, and I am currently preparing for the GRE. I am very gregarious and never expected tutoring to give me the kinds of relationships with people that it has.

I have assisted mostly adult students (18 yrs +) with college level science papers, history papers, English composition papers, literature papers, etc. I love getting to read papers of all different subjects. I especially love when a paper is about the author's goals, something I can encourage him or her towards. My approach to tutoring usually involves the student explaining to me what issues he or she struggles with and we try to come up with strategies to attack the issue.

I do everything I can for my students. I am currently working my way through a phonetics textbook because I have had several students that had issues with spelling at the college level, and I want to be able to help them as much as possible. From my experience, adults seem to have a more difficult time learning what might come generally easier for children because adults often want to know the how's and why's of the English language. Spelling had always been rather easy for me so I never bothered with the how's and why's until now. People often ask me what I like about my job and the core of it really is people, getting to know them and use my knowledge to help them. I know some people can be intimidated by tutors, so I do my best to keep everything engaging. I really try to get to know my students so that I can better understand them and cater my examples to their interest. I also have a crazy sense of humor that has put more students at ease than scare away.

English Grammar, Academic Writing, British and American Literature, English Vocabulary, and Argumentation. I am also in the process of teaching myself phonetics.

Feel free to contact me to learn more or to schedule lessons.

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

I have a Bachelor's Degree in English, which I earned with two honors.

Theatre

I was involved in Community Theater productions in jr. high and took acting classes for a year in high school before competing in interpretive speeches for six moths. I competed in both the dramatic and humorous speech categories. In college, I took an Intro to Theater course in which I received an A. I also took a Native American Drama course and a Honors level Modern Drama course, in which I also received A's, and where I performed in two skits directed by a professional actor. I also took a college speech course where I received an A.
