My aim is to help writers from all backgrounds not only improve their work, but improve their overall understanding and skill of English writing. I love meeting with writers from diverse backgrounds and believe that no matter the topic, discipline, or writer's experience, we can come together to learn.
I am an English writing enthusiast with 4 years of tutoring experience (both in person & online). During college I worked at my university's writing center where I completed a semester-long course in writing center theory. Throughout my 4 years I gained theoretical and practical experience, working with writers from all disciplines and backgrounds, and was constantly encouraged to reflect and improve upon my advising approach. The most important lesson I've gained through all this experience is not how to edit a paper, but how anyone can write when given the tools and encouragement to do so.
