I approach each topic with plenty of applicable examples that will explain confusing and abstract concepts. I also provide line-by-line detailed feedback on essays to help students strengthen their writing craft. I use accessible language to help explain writing and literature concepts so students will understand the actual process and background behind writing and literary techniques.
I am a student who has completed three writing and editing internships, including one at a university press. I have helped several peers with their writing skills, and I'm great at test prep as well. I've helped several students bring essay grades from C's to A's, and I've helped students become better test-takers by helping them learn the necessary skills not only to memorize information but to understand and retain it as well.
I am a self-driven, diligent worker who can adapt quickly to a new workplace environment. I tend to work efficiently and multitask as much as possible.
