University of Cambridge graduate and Butler university student tutors in English literature

Methodology

I am a graduate student at Butler University studying for a masters in English literature. I completed my undergraduate degree in England at the University of Cambridge. I am currently employed at the Writers' Studio at Butler University tutoring students on their papers giving me direct tutoring experience and confidence in my ability to make tutoring sessions both fun and worthwhile. I try to get the student to figure out the answers to their questions by themselves through prompting and discussion. I am personable and hopefully interesting and I like to make content as applicable to real-life situations and contemporary events as possible.

Background

I've been tutoring at the Butler University Writers' Studio for six months teaching many students throughout my time there. Typically I will teach one student per hour and I have been working a minimum of six hours a week at the Studio. I have worked with some students on a regular basis building up an understanding of their needs. Typically these students have reported back to me that they are receiving A's and A-'s on their papers. It's a really rewarding process and getting positive feedback from my students shows me that I can offer a valuable service.

Rates

Transportation Fee : $10
Rate for online lessons : $20/h

Details

If I have to travel further then ten miles I would charge $40 rather than $35.
