Areas of Expertise:

  • I enjoy helping students focus on improving their writing, whether it be enhancing their strengths or working in areas of weakness. Towards this goal, I can help the student anywhere from theisis statements, organization, citation, and transitions to sentence construction and grammar (including the dreaded comma!)

Message to Students:

I always tell my students that writing, unlike math, is messy. Writing a paper is not over in one draft. A paper needs reread and revised more than once to achieve that successful end result. It always helps to have someone, such as someone from this service, review this paper. The free tutoring provided here helps in those areas the student needs to get that desired end result.

You can utilize eTutoring to receive valuable feedback on your writing. The asynchronous option requires little effort or time commitment from students because they can simply submit a paper for review and receive written feedback that can be reviewed and applied at their leisure. For students who have tight schedules or cannot make it to on-campus tutoring, eTutoring is a fabulous alternative.
