"Hello! My name is Monica and I am a writing tutor at a local college. I have a passion for helping students become better speakers, writers, and lifelong learners. I earned a bachelor's in classical studies from a small liberal arts college in Indiana, where I was lucky enough to have many professors with genuine enthusiasm for their subjects and students. I have a bachelor's degree in maritime studies, and finished additional graduate coursework at the University of Alabama. As a college history instructor, I helped students read sources critically, make strong, factually supported arguments, and craft well-written and organized essays. For the past year, I have taught Chinese students online in a 1-1 setting. These students have ranged from pre-kindergarteners to businesswomen, at all levels of English fluency.

There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a student connect with a concept, idea, or skill. Even if the high five is over the computer, I feel so much joy and pride for my students when they succeed. The best tutor is one whose students learn enough not to need her.

In addition to my experience as a writing tutor, I have been teaching nearly full-time as a home-based English teacher to primary Mandarin speakers of all ages. Most students, however, range from ages 5 to 12. I have taught letter recognition, phonics, grammar, vocabulary expansion, reading comprehension, and conversational skills. Additionally, I have tutored older teens and young professionals for the spoken portion of the IELTS.

Not only do I love history, but it used to be my job! I taught history as a grad assistant and instructor at the University of Alabama for six years. My areas of expertise are early modern Europe and the broader Western Civilization courses. If you are struggling with history essays, I can help you make a stronger argument and bolster your sources, no matter the class.

Curious? Send me a message!" less...
