Everyone has a story to tell, and I want to help you tell yours.

I studied a broad range of literature while earning my BA from the University of Illinois. I am very familiar with the British and American canons and have some exposure to eastern works. I have been tutoring writing and speech communication for years. While I enjoy teaching in the classroom, I have found students advance faster and achieve better grades with one-on-one discussion. Expressing yourself through writing and speech can be fun. Trust me. But I understand that college courses can be intimidating. We will work together so that you clearly understand your assignments and what your [more]

There is no greater joy I've found than the joy of teaching.

Literature teaches not only the history and culture of society, but it teaches moral lessons and universal truths about mankind. I spent much of my college career being exposed to many different types of literature, such as American, Latin American, and British works. Students may benefit from the knowledge I have acquired in this particular area of my field. Over the past four years, I have been an educator, and not just in a classroom. When I began college, I was a dance teacher in a studio. A couple years later, I became a trainer for a coffee company and a restaurant. This past summer [more]

I like weird things like English and History

Hello future tutees, (is that what you're called?) my name is Ali and I'm a sophomore at Augustana College. I am majoring in English and History and minoring in MJMC which is basically journalism. I love to write and read about history, as well as make probably very unfunny historical jokes. I am also super into reading and editing essays for fun. My professors have considered me to be a very talented writer, and I love it a lot so I'm going to try and make a career out of it. I would lov... [more]

History, Social Studies, Test prep, and Artistic Endeavors

For the past two years, I have been working towards earning my master's degree while teaching undergraduate courses in history. I have seen how dramatically a student's grades and overall comprehension of a subject can change when given individualized, specific help in their work. Working one-on-one with my students during my office hours caused several students to go from a C or D grade to a B or an A. Diligence on a student's part is required, but it is also important that the tutor pays... [more]
