Post-graduate student with over a decade of experience in tutoring both creative and academic writing

Methodology

My teaching approach is relaxed, flexible, and directive-driven. I like to explain how and why students/clients are making the corrections that they are in their works. I also believe collaboration is very important between tutors & students so that one may learn from the other.

Background

My undergraduate studies focused on Fiction Writing whereas my graduate studied were academic-based. I have been providing quality tutoring services and lessons to students over the past decade in both 4-year and 2-year university & college settings. I have taught numerous Humanities courses that are closely associated with English as well as more diverse areas such as History, Nursing, & the Sciences.
