Education

CU-Boulder - BA, English Literature

Experience

I received my B.A. from the University of Colorado at Boulder in English Literature. After graduation, I discovered the difficulty in entering into the job market. However, it did not take long for me to find that my extensive knowledge in writing is my biggest asset in finding a career. I enjoy working as tutor because I am able to help students develop their reading and writing skills. I firmly believe reading and writing are interlinked and when improving on one, the other will improve. I have worked with students to grow their skills for both academic and personal reasons. I have experience in mechanics and spelling with primary and middle school aged children. I have worked with high school students on test preparation, and in college I worked with peers on essay organization, thesis statements and papers, as well as personal statements. Many students struggle with writing because they are intimidated or view it as mere busy work and do not take it seriously. I believe writing should not be scary or viewed as a burden, but something to put your personality and thoughts into. I think that writing does not necessarily always have a right answer (unless it is proper word use), but is a way to express yourself. I am passionate about giving students the skills to write for themselves without fear or dread. When I am not working, I like to work on my photography, cook, play with my dog, watch sports (Jayhawks!), and watch documentaries.
