About Maura

I recently graduated summa cum laude from Carthage College, where I was employed as a Writing Fellow. I learned how much I love tutoring there: encouraging students to realize their own potential is a very rewarding experience for me.

I have been a literature geek all my life, and my writing and reading skills are excellent. I am an actress, which makes me a fun, empathetic, and creative tutor. I can easily adapt my style of tutoring depending upon the student and the student's attitude, but I am always kind and encouraging while having authority. I prefer to guide my students through their material, allowing them to notice and correct their own mistakes. I ask a lot of questions while tutoring, this gives my students the opportunity to take ownership of their own work.

Although I was not an English major in college, I had a 4.0 in all my English classes. Being a tutor in the Writing Center improved my already excellent writing skills, and I can help students with every aspect of writing. I am an expert in grammar and mechanics, strong sentence structure, strong thesis statements (and supporting arguments), and MLA format.

I am very familiar with every type of literature and the reading and analysis skills that literature requires; I am particularly an expert in Shakespeare. I was homeschooled during grade school and high school, and this made me a self-motivated, detail-oriented student. I am also able to offer my expertise in time management and goal setting -- these skills will help not only with English studies, but with all academic subjects (as well as life)!
