Masters Degree English Tutor helps with essay writing for high school and university students.

Methodology

I believe in an inquiry-based approach to teaching (often referred to as the Socratic method). That is to say, I do not believe in simply telling a student how to do something. Rather, I collaborate with the student and allow them to ask questions in order for them to feel confident and capable enough to do the work themselves. I will provide guidance regarding the academic research process, as well the writing process. We will use your own strengths and weaknesses as starting points in order to identify what can be improved. Ultimately my goal will be to help enhance your critical thinking and analytical skills, while simultaneously providing practical, actionable guidance on technical writing skills.

I specialize in English; however, I offer writing help in other various disciplines.

Background

I am a recently graduated Master's student with aspirations to pursue a PhD in English Literature and teach English at the university level. I have over 5 years of teaching/tutoring experience. Most recently, I was a Writing Instructor Aide at a college in Saskatchewan, and prior to that I was a teaching assistant at Western University while I was pursuing my Master's degree. I'm here to help you learn how to be a better essay writer!
