Evergreen State College (English Literature)
Central Washington University (Master's)
Over the course of the past few years, I have worked as a professional writing tutor for CWU (on both the Ellensburg and Lynnwood campuses). During that time, I tutored many types of individuals, such as English as a second language, first-generation, non-traditional, veteran, and native speaking students on subjects related to the conventions of academic writing. Although my degrees are in English literature, I have a very strong background in grammar. I enjoy explaining grammatical concepts and taking the mystery out of grammar for my students.
Currently, I work as a professional substitute teacher for the Shoreline School District. Working in this academic post, I teach a wide variety of middle and high school students in English, history, science, and art classes.
One of the most important traits of an outstanding tutor (or teacher) is based on the person's listening skills. As both a professional tutor and teacher, I have spent many hours listening to students who struggle with various concepts in their classes. By carefully listening to these individuals, I have helped a large percentage of my students become successful in their assignments and classes. Additionally, I strongly believe the element of patience is significant for all tutors. During my years as both a tutor and teacher, I have learned that nearly all students need extra time in which to fully comprehend and master new academic material.
In terms of tutoring sessions, I'm usually available nearly every day of the week between 4:00 and 10:00 PM. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you with your academic pursuits.

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.
