Private tutor in Chicago, IL
University of Illinois at Chicago - BA, Psychology
I earned an undergraduate degree in Psychology while studying at the University of Illinois in Chicago. I also minored in English, which included a concentration in Gender and Women's Studies, Literature Analysis, and Poetry. I'm now studying to obtain my graduate degree in Creative Writing with a concentration in Poetry.Over the last 48 months, I have worked with students and writers in the capacity of a tutor at various areas in Chicago. Initially, I tutored at various Boys & Girls Club offices, and I later tutored at the UIC Writing Center. It was while engaging in tutoring that I came to understand how critical it is to figure out how students view the world around them in order to best reach out to them and assist them.I'm very versatile, but my primary passion is English concentrations such as test preparation, writing, and language comprehension, since I have a strong attachment to literature. I've come to see the power of words and how words can be the catalyst to bring about self-actualization.My greatest fulfillment comes from helping students to understand complex topics and subjects, and in seeing their confidence grow. Furthermore, I'm wiling to dedicate as much time as it takes to ensure that my students understand the things they need help in.In my spare time, I enjoy biking, reading, running, producing poetry, spending time with my pet, literary criticism, baking, and cooking.
