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.

Reading

Reading is a critical component of both my professional vocation and my education. I am an avid reader with a keen insight for tone and literary device. As an English major at George Mason University, my focus of study was in non fiction writing and ethnography. The discipline required extensive reading, which I very much enjoyed. I also find it very rewarding share my passion for reading with others.

Writing

As a professional writer and copy editor, I have extensive experience in writing and editing. In my professional role, I am responsible for both internal and external written communication, website copy, newsletter copy and corporate proposals. I am a strong editor and I work well with others. I graduated from George Mason University with a BA in English and Communication.
