EducationI will be a senior at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga this fall. I am an English Writing major, minoring in communication, and will be going to graduate school upon completion of my undergraduate degree. My desired occupation after college is to be a book editor for a major publishing company.
ExperienceI currently work at UTC's Writing Center where I assist students in all steps of the writing process. I help them with brainstorming and making outlines, organization of ideas, grammar, and final revision. I will never write a paper for an individual, but I am more than willing to help in all aspects pertaining to his or her paper. I attempt to teach students writing skills they can apply to future papers.
I have an overall GPA of 3.89 and have completed 39 hours of English classes in my college career so far.
I have also completed an internship with C&R Press, a local publishing company. I was in charge of promoting one of their annual contests and a book of one of their new authors.
HobbiesI'm friendly, outgoing, and eager to help students who struggle with writing. If one explanation does not get through to a student, I try a different approach. It is not in my nature to give up. I require students to actively participate in the writing of their paper, and with that, comes a certain level of education and development of their writing skills. I want editing to be my future occupation, so tutoring for writing will be enjoyable for me.
