Writing, Reading, and Critical Thinking for the Humanities

As a result, I know what your professors will be looking for! The classes themselves have been philosophy, literature, and writing courses, which all involve critical reading and writing, so I have been teaching those skills as part of those classes for just as...

Reading, Writing, and Test Prep Tutor

I have always loved teaching and am pursuing a career teaching at the college level. My favorite thing about tutoring is the moment when a student says "I understand now!"; this moment is the reason that I tutor.

In 2017-2018 I also constructed and taught weekly private vocal music lessons to an elementary school student. I am beginning my second... [more]
