"My scholarship and passion for writing started very early in my college career. Once I found my passion, it became my focus of study. Given this, Bard College trained me in pedagogy and composition theory. I learned how to write in different genres, in different conventions, and how to teach others to do the same thing. Writers have two outlets for their work--writing and teaching. I ran towards both: while writing academic papers, I wrote small pieces for publication, and became a Writing Fellow and tutor. As a Writing Fellow and tutor, I created a novel way to help other students write better papers through a layering process. My layering process turns mediocre papers into great papers that people want to read, and enjoy reading, regardless of the subject. My layering process transforms the way students view their writing process and makes them more efficient writers. Writing well comes from one's perception. My layering process enhances one's perception; thus, it enhances one's writing.

In addition, I figured out study techniques that helped students know required material, rather than merely memorizing it. We do not memorize how to tie our shoes, tell someone what time it is, or make a cup of coffee--we know how to do these things. I can help students study in a way that will allow them to not only know required material instead of memorizing it, but to apply that material in real life. My study techniques make retention of complicated material much easier than traditional models.

I have a degree from Bard College, where I was a Writing Fellow and tutor. Furthermore, I tutored students from John Jay College of Criminal Justice and North Country Community College. In addition, I also prepared students for the reading and writing parts of the tests to earn a General Equivalency Diploma, including students who had english as a second language.

I will help you at your home or online. My tutoring rates are based on me coming to meet you; however, I will tutor you online, via video chat, for $30" less...
