Methodology

I am a collaborative tutor. My main goal is to meet your needs, whether that be for an assignment or project. I want to help you succeed in your communication. I always make sure to understand the larger purpose of your writing, and then build a unique approach based off of your needs. I have an extensive range of resources at my disposal to improve your skillset as a writer!

Background

Hey! My name is Bridget and I have been tutoring at DePaul's University Center for Writing-based Learning for 4 years now. I have worked with over two hundred writers on writing-based communication in all subjects, ranging from lab reports to creative writing to thesis/dissertations. I have special experience working with ELL/EAL students, and am a published author myself!
