I want to be a tutor because no other form of work gives me the same sense of satisfaction and fulfillment. I like the one-on-one learning environment because it allows a kind of individual attention and safety that the classroom rarely provides. I love the experience of watching a student improve session after session, and gain the confidence he or she needs to write successful essays without fear of failure.
As an English and Creative Writing major, I have taken all variety of literature and writing courses at Colgate University. In my writing classes in particular, I learned how to target areas for improvement and give constructive criticism to peers in the often scary and difficult process of sharing their work.
July 201l-December 2011: work in book publishing for a prestigious literary agency in New York, NY, where I'm afforded the unique opportunity of contributing input to the manuscripts of our high-profile clients.
September 2011-December 2011: freelance tutor every day after work for two high school seniors who are working on their college application essays (and any other academic essays with which they need help).
HobbiesRunning, cycling, basketball, outdoor adventures of all kinds, and, of course, reading & writing
