English graduate with 2 years of experience offering Academic English and writing tutoring

Methodology

I've worked primarily with undergraduate and graduate students. I believe that every student is different and every session will be different. Therefore, I believe in approaching each student in a way that they believe will work for them. It's important for the tutor to ask questions just as it is important for the student to ask questions. From note taking to diagrams to flashcards, I believe that and open dialogue where both participants are active listeners is the way to truly teach someone.

Background

I worked as a peer tutor at the University of Illinois-Chicago, working with over 100 students during my time there. We covered essay writing not just from English classes but every major and subject, be it a literature review for biology or ssychology, or a master's thesis in computer science or art history. We also welcomed students looking for help with their resumes or cover letters. Students have understood what it takes to write an essay and how to correctly argue for and against a topic. In terms of grades, students have been able to improve in class with more concise and technical academic writing.
