Hello There. I am a graduate of MTSU, recently moved from Nashville, TN, attending ODU to obtain my graduate degree in creative writing. I currently tutor at ODU's writing center and will be teaching College Composition in Fall 2021. I'm very patient and always excited to help a student with their writing. No matter the phase--whether starting a draft or revising a final copy--there is potential in everything a student brings. The potential for better, for something great! I want to help students maximize that potential, explaining how to get there, what they can do to improve their own writing. I'm all about increasing a student's confidence in their own writing. Remember: all that you write has potential. YOU have potential. I want to help you realize that, so you will grow as a student and as an individual!

Grammar

Grammar

I am a tutor at ODU, where I help students ensure their ideas on paper are clear, adhere to syntax guidelines, while remaining concise and to-the-point. I often work with ESL students who wish to go over their paper for any grammar issues - big or small.

Reading,

Reading

Part of what makes a good writer is a desire to read as much as they can. Whether it's understanding what makes a sentence "work" or analyzing the effectiveness of a particular paragraph, I guide students throughout the process of understanding what they are reading in a digestible manner, eliminating the "academic intimidation" of certain scholastic pieces.
Vocabulary

Vocabulary

If there's one thing I always have readily available, it's a dictionary and thesaurus. I help students utilize the resources available to them, discussing what works in certain scenarios and what best to avoid (while ultimately staying aligned to what they are required to write, or their interpretation of what they are reading).

Writing

Writing

I have experience with short stories and longer drafts. I enjoy talking about the process, walking through what works in a story as well as what doesn't, and ways a writer can approach revision.
