ExperienceMy tutoring strategy aims to make my students their own educational advocates. During my tutoring sessions, we work on organization, study skills, stress and time management, and test taking strategies as basics, and then move on to details like grammar, spelling, and sentence structure. I have a background in publishing and proofreading, so I really enjoy tutoring students in writing skills. I believe that writing is a fundamental form of communication, which is why I tutor all age ranges in the basics of good writing. I have taught college students English and writing skills, and also public speaking, organization skills, good study habits, and interpersonal communication. I have also worked as a proofreader and document processor, primarily with international law firms. That is almost a form of tutoring in itself, because I work with the writers to correct mistakes. When I review a draft of a student's paper, I move from big, whole picture issues (like the overall idea for the essay and thesis), to smaller issues (like grammar and spelling mistakes). Understanding how to read and write properly helps students become more informed citizens, because they have a better fundamental understanding of communication. I also tutor Microsoft products like Word, PowerPoint, and Excel.
