ExperienceI believe that each student deserves to have available the best education possible. It is the first stepping stone to providing oneself with a better life and long-term success. I feel that my purpose as a tutor is to challenge and help to better every student on their own path to success. It is up to each individual to make the choice to commit to success. I wish to help each student to make the choice to better themselves through education. I hold a degree from the University of Massachusetts in Theater and a minor in English, and I received a letter of specialization in professional writing as well as technical communication. After a ten year career working in the field of technical writing in multiple different industries, I finally landed a job working for Bank of America. I left my position at Bank of America to complete my degree in Education at Pepperdine University, which I completed in 2013. My end goal is to become a full-time teacher in the classroom; however, I found that while in school, some of my most enjoyable experiences came with helping students one on one and in small groups. It is a rewarding experience to me when a student can connect material together and learn new things. I try to help my students one on one by using what they have already learned to connect with new material. I feel that this approach, in the long run, helps students to better retain information and learn better. I particularly enjoy helping students learn to more effectively express themselves through writing. This is also something which impacted my decision to pursue teaching, as I can use the experience I have acquired as a business writer to help instruct students. Subjects that I specialize in include reading, writing, essay writing and editing, literature, grammar and mechanics, college essay writing, and study and organizational skills.
