Education student in Portland with three years of experience tutoring writing. Offering writing and literature tutoring to all levels.

Methodology

When I tutor writing, I focus more on the writer than on the assignment itself. The goal is to help improve the student's writing process. Instead of telling the student what to fix, I try to ask them questions about specific aspects of their paper. I find that this helps the student reflect more carefully about their writing and discover on their own what works and what does not.

Background

Currently I am applying to pursue a Masters in Education. At my undergraduate institution, Santa Clara University, I worked as a writing tutor for three years. I have worked with many different students on a wide variety of writing assignments.
