EducationI go to UW-Milwaukee. I was originally a Biology major with intentions of going into medical school; however, I changed to a major in English with a minor in Biology. I am a Senior and I will graduate in spring of 2015.
ExperienceMy tutoring experience is fairly varied. It ranges from teaching K5 scholars the fundamentals of phonics to editing collegiate level essays.
I want to be a tutor because I really enjoy helping students appreciate English. It makes me happy when someone's essay gains more depth and they can voice themselves on paper or identify with the symbolism in a book.
I got a 30 on my ACT and my English score was a 34.
I have won a few writing contests in the regional area and I also have a written commendation from the dean of the English department at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee
HobbiesI really enjoy reading and writing. From an early age I was given books and I love the feelings language can evoke. A lot of people find language and writing difficult, but I want to show that it is beautiful and nothing to fear.
In my off time I like to play video games and play sports. I have played organized sports for a long time now.I also like photography and some DIY work as well. When I graduate, I plan to travel and write with my best friend for a year before I go to graduate school.
I am pretty easy going. I would say the just the right mix of serious and goofy to be approachable.
