About Ginger

I recently graduated from the University of Utah with my master's in English with an emphasis in British and American Literature. I also graduated magna cum laude with a BA in English from the University of Utah.

During my master's program, I taught undergraduate rhetoric and composition courses (WRTG 2010). The course is a required course, so I was able to work with students who were studying varying disciplines. I've taught and tutored English and writing to college, high school, and middle school students, and I've also edited academic papers from fields including engineering, environmental studies, nutrition, political science, music, and the humanities.

I’m passionate about teaching students how to articulate themselves through writing, and I love the confidence which that ability instills in students. As a graduate instructor, I was able to approach my field of interest with an entirely different perspective, and reconsidering writing from the vantage point of someone who felt academic writing to be inaccessible allowed me to identify and then articulate the different elements of academic writing – both for myself and for my students. This new perspective gave me a greater appreciation for the work and effort that is required to write well, and I took it upon myself as an instructor to make the work enjoyable and accessible for my students.

I thoroughly enjoy getting to know people, and I believe that one of the best ways to get to know someone is through their writing. I consider it a privilege to work closely with students to develop their writing skills so that they can feel capable of speaking intelligently about things which are both required of and important to them.

Whether you need help with one particular project or you're looking for regular tutoring, I'm able to help. I'm available to meet at public places, such as a library or coffee shop, or online.

I look forward to hearing from you!

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

Received a Master of Arts degree in English with an emphasis in British and American Literature in May of 2016, and taught undergraduate rhetoric and composition.

Proofreading

I taught undergraduate rhetoric and composition while I completed my master's in English, and I was the lead project editor for Pictures and Stories during a 2015 Summer Internship.
