American University student offering English tutoring in the Washington, D.C. area to all ages.

Methodology

My approach as a tutor is to be cognizant of others' writing styles and interests. That said, my goal is to empower students to be confident in what they write while reaching their academic goals. I like to help guide students in a way that leads them to their own realizations throughout the writing and editing process.

Background

I am a Senior studying International Relations at American University. I have held internships at the University of Notre Dame, Capitol Hill, and the Department of Justice. From speechwriting as an intern to publishing articles through organizations at AU, writing and editing has become a passion of mine over the years. I hope to help students improve upon their own abilities while learning to love what they write.
