College English Major with Arts Background and Creative Writing Experience Excited to Tutor in the Akron OH Area!

Methodology

I try to break down seemingly daunting tasks into smaller, bite-size pieces, and I attempt to give each student a metaphorical "tool box" of strategies to approaching literature and poetry, writing about literature, and constructing productive analyses in essays. These strategies also come in handy with building creative pieces and determining what works and why in creating a good creative work.

Background

I am currently a junior at a liberal arts college pursuing an English major. I have done a junior Independent Study in the avenue of literature and the media, and I am experienced in essay writing, creative writing, and editing. I also have an extensive arts background, which I often use in making comparisons and analogies in my teaching, if possible.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $25/h

Details

For pricing, I require a day's advance notice for a cancelled lesson or I will still charge for that missed time.
