Energetic, passionate, and experienced ESL/ESOL tutor!

I tutored academic writing at Eastern Michigan University while completing my Master's. Though I worked with international students, the writing strategies and techniques I used with students cross over to general academic writing. Because I tutored writing in an official capacity as a graduate assistant, I received extensive training on tutoring writing. I completed my MA in TESOL from Eastern Michigan University last year! I have experience teaching and tutoring English to students of all ages! I started in the TESOL field about 4 years ago when I completed the CELTA program in Belfast, Nort [more]

As a volunteer with Youth With a Mission (an ... [more]

First of all, I want you to know that you or your student would feel very safe and comfortable with me.

Tutor with experience

While teaching English Composition at Cornerstone University, Grand Rapids, MI, my students consistently tested at the forefront of their peers. By teaching them to understand the four domains of high-quality writing, Creativity, Story Telling, Structure / Logic and Grammar rules, I am able to build on students' natural strengths while helping them strengthen their skills in areas that can create writing frustration or writers block. Great writing arises out of mastery of four different domains: 1) Personal Creativity 2) Telling a Compelling Story 3) Organizing ideas with Structure and Lo [more]

Tutoring Services in English and the Social Sciences

Writing and reading instruction are the two sides of the same coin. For one to improve one's capacity to present ideas, to communicate with peers, and to influence others it is necessary to be able to communicate in writing well, and in a myriad of formats. Writing instruction is the development of syntax and paragraphing skills and strategies; however, it is also the understanding of how writers use language to influence readers and how readers comprehend what writers are saying. Students that show a proficiency in writing greatly improve their scores in Advance Placement, ACT, and SAT tests. [more]
