Here to Help You Learn

Hi, my name is Rachel, and I love to help students understand what they're learning in school. As a graduate of Biola University, I have found myself in a position to help students with what they do not understand. While at college, I spent some of my free time (when not working at the campus bookstore and doing my own homework) tutoring students in the local community. Since then, I have had the opportunity to regularly help students both with their homework and to help them learn concepts t... [more]

Dedicated Tutor for Math, English, and Study Skills

My entire life I have enjoyed teaching and helping others. Throughout high school and college, friends came to me for help in all subject areas; my teachers even grouped me with struggling students so that I could help them through difficult concepts and class work. After high school I attended the University of Oregon for a B.A. in Economics, with a minor in Mathematics, and a GPA of 3.67. In tutoring, I first focus on understanding exactly what a student is having trouble with, then use a ... [more]

Language Arts Wizard

One of my duties as a university writing tutor was to help students work on their proofreading. One strategy suggested to make students active in catching their own mistakes was asking them to read their piece aloud. Students would also mark up their writing themselves. For nine months, I worked as a tutor at the MTSU Writing Center. My goal as a tutor is to help learners succeed by useful strategies for reading and writing. I believe that revising and editing skills are vital to the writer. It is rare that a first draft of any piece of writing will ever be "complete," and as a tutor, I enjoy [more]

Experienced Writer

I recently graduated with my MA in Rhetoric and Writing and moved to Portland shortly after, looking for both a career and lifestyle change. I've found the lifestyle change I hoped for but as of yet am stuck on the career part, so I thought I'd try my hand at online tutoring. While I don't have much formal tutoring experience, I have younger siblings and cousins I have tutored in addition to peer mentoring in college. While in high school, I was a member of the Teen Leadership Corps. Part... [more]

Experienced writing instructor, journalist, published author

Proofreading requires accurate knowledge of the conventions of the language, ability to recognize voice and style, familiarity with the AP style manual, an awareness of changing linguistic patterns and close, careful reading skills. All writers need to learn proofreading skills and be able to apply them to their own writings. This not only means developing an ability to read for editing errors but for organization, purpose, rhythm, flow, detail, development and rhetorical surprises. A certain pride should come from successful proofreading. As a newspaper journalist for over twenty years, I ho [more]
