Patient, Flexible, and Successful English and Writing Tutor

I have a B.A. in English from the College of William and Mary, and I taught high school English for eleven years. For over a year now, I have worked as a college writing tutor where I have helped students revise, edit, and proofread essays. These students have come from all levels of higher education, from freshman composition to doctoral candidates. I believe that proofreading should include not only help identifying errors, but explanations to prevent the error from occurring in future papers and drafts. [more]

Ready to help you succeed

I write as a hobby. I had two articles published in 2014. I am working on another article as well as a book for publication. I carry an English minor with my Bachelor's degree. During that matriculation, my English professors often told me that I should have majored in it. I do love the English language and all it entails. I wish to share that appreciation with my students. I have always found spelling to be my strongest subject. I won multiple spelling bees during my elementary education. I still educate myself on correct spelling to this day. I enjoy helping people achieve their goals [more]

Tutor with a "Tom Sawyer" approach.

Writing is more than putting words on paper. It involves word choice word order, punctuation, spelling and the development of a writing style. Paragraph construction involves topic and supporting sentences. One suggestion in paragraph structure is that a paragraph have at least three sentences: a topic sentence, a supporting sentence and a concluding sentence. An essay involves linking two or more paragraphs. These paragraphs are arranged in an order that demonstrates a more complex idea. There is great skill in choosing the paragraphs and developing a cohesive line of reasoning. Each ag [more]
