About Devin

I have a lifelong passion for learning, and I love to pass on what I have learned and help others attain the success that I enjoy through academic achievement. I am a Summa Cum Laude graduate of the University of Oregon who has achieved success as a tutor at the university level. I worked as a tutor for the University of Oregon to help pay my way through college, and I was so successful, I was allowed to teach a remedial writing course while still an undergraduate. In addition, I worked as a teaching assistant for college composition courses and assisted professors with reading and grading papers.

After graduating from UO, I returned several years later and was hired by the university to coordinate and manage the tutorial program for UO Athletics. While in this position, I continued to hold individual and group tutorial sessions for student-athletes. Students who worked with me became more successful in all of their courses because I worked with them to improve their general study skills and strategies in addition to course-specific study.

Words are powerful, and the proper use of them is essential to a successful life. I am a successful English tutor because I am a master of words. As a writer, tutor, and a lifelong reader and student of literature, I have the ability to look at the words, behind the words, and beyond the words to see the subtleties of language often overlooked by a superficial reading. I am also an expert in grammar and punctuation, which are integral components of communication.

I am an expert in argumentative writing, composition and literary, and I excel at reading and writing about all literary genres. I am a Shakespeare fanatic, and I have studied many of his plays. I am proud to boast that many of my former students, who came to me thinking the literature they were assigned to read was a foreign language, left our sessions excited about literature and able to understand, analyze, and write about it successfully.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success!

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.

Bible Studies

I studied the Bible as literature in college, and I completed the Episcopal Church's Education for Ministry course, which includes studying the Bible. My tutorial style involves looking closely at the text and studying thematic material. My style does not involve advocating any particular religion, denomination, or specific interpretation.
