Tutoring Philosophy: 

I was once a freshman that believed I could write well, yet I found it challenging to effectively convey this “ability” in my papers. I quickly learned that writing at the college level is much harder than I initially thought, but I believe the potential for good writing is in each and every college student. The Writing Center does not merely aim to teach, but the Writing Center provides students with a mirror in which to reflect on their writing ability. Ultimately, our achievements in Writing Center sessions are the client’s own triumphs. Therefore, I became a tutor because I want clients to eventually develop useful tips for independent writing, and I want to see all our clients succeed.
