Vocabulary

As a writer (with a degree in Creative Writing), I have an expansive vocabulary. As a tutor, I have worked with many high school and college students on issues of diction and syntax in papers of a variety of academic fields -- from English to Philosophy, Psychology, and beyond.


Grammar

As a student of writing, I have had 4+ years of instruction in grammar at the college level, and more than 6 years at the secondary ed level. I frequently encounter grammar and proofreading issues with students in my professional tutoring experience.


Reading

As I possess a degree in Creative Writing, I am well-read in many schools of literature, especially contemporary fiction and some poetry. Critically, I have read a wide range of literature, both fiction and nonfiction, for a variety of courses in my time as a college student. I have tutored for reading-intensive courses at both the high school and college levels, including several English, Reading, and Communications courses at Onondaga Community College as an Academic Tutor II.

I hold a Bachelors Degree from SUNY Purchase College in Creative Writing (Fiction), with a minor in Screenwriting.

I currently work as an English/Writing Tutor (Academic Tutor II) for Onondaga Community College's Educational Opportunity Program, and am approved to tutor student-athletes in several writing-intensive courses in English and Textual Studies at Syracuse University. I have privately tutored some high school students in English, dealing specifically in the writing of personal essays, research essays, and book reviews.
