I have a Master's in English Literature and Creative Writing and can assist you with multiple types of writing: fiction, non-fiction, poetry, academic papers (EDITING ALSO AVAILABLE)

Methodology

I provide completely judgment-free tutoring. You can totally be yourself around me! I will work with you on whatever YOU most want to improve, not what I most want to work on. You can count on me to be honest with you, and I will always be kind and understanding. I think that tutoring sessions should last anywhere from 30 to 90 minutes so that neither of us gets too tired (but sessions can be shorter than 30 minutes if that works better for you).

Background

Hello, my name is Micaela Muldoon, and I specialize in writing and editing. I hold a B.A. in English Language, Literature and Creative Writing & Communication, Media, and Film (a double-major degree) from the University of Windsor. I also hold an M.A. in English Literature and Creative Writing, and I am currently pursuing an additional M.A. in Folklore. As such, I have written dozens of academic and creative pieces over several years, including a creative thesis for my first M.A. I also had the opportunity to read and critique my peers’ work and to receive critiques from my peers on my own work.
During my undergraduate degree, I worked as a Teaching Assistant for the courses Foundations of Academic Writing I and II at the University of Windsor. As a graduate student at the University of Windsor, I worked as a Graduate Assistant for the Editing and Publishing Practicum, which required me to guide students in publishing and launching a poetry manuscript. This experience was informed by my time as a student in that same practicum. I was also a Graduate Assistant for the Women in Literature course, and during my final semester, I was the Student Writer-in-Residence. In the latter position, I assisted a professor with a first-year creative writing course, and I helped graduate and undergraduate students improve their writing. My edits were both technical and developmental.
Over the past year, I worked as a Writing Tutor at Memorial University of Newfoundland’s Writing Centre. My job was to assist graduate students with technical and stylistic improvements to their papers. I worked with papers across multiple fields, including folklore, gender studies, engineering, and environmental sciences.
In a volunteer capacity, I wrote for the arts section of the University of Windsor's newspaper, The Lance, for nearly three years. I also volunteered teaching English to basic, intermediate, and advanced learners for two hours a week, once a week, for almost two years at the Windsor Public Library in Ontario.
