EducationBA Social Sciences as Shimer College
ExperienceOver the last 4 years I've assisted literally hundreds of students with their academic writing. Whether grad or undergrad, humanities or business management, there is no student or level of study which is 'off limits' to me. I have worked with people all over the board in their academic careers. I've effectively tutored students in writing as well as critical thinking to ensure their writing is solid, clear and coherent.
My interest in tutoring, in specific, emerges partly through my experiences in working with students on their papers. However I think my experience at Shimer College, where I was enrolled in a writing-intensive, discussion-based curriculum, has been my main inspiration to begin work as a tutor.
HobbiesYou might consider me somewhat of a 'Renaissance man' at heart. While most of my coursework has taken place in the area of social sciences (studying psychology, political theory, anthropology, economics, and more), I gained a well-rounded education at Shimer. In order to graduate from Shimer I had to take courses in the areas of humanities, natural sciences and history as well.
However my passion for learning has taken me well beyond the limits of my degree. I read and write on a variety of subjects which are well beyond the range of what I studied in school. I receive no credit for these studies, nor do I intend to go to school for them. My passion for learning goes above and beyond the achievement of a degree. It is a passion for expanding my worldview rather than for earning a title.
Thus with respect to tutoring my goal is not simply to help a student achieve a standard of excellence in their particular area of study. It is to inspire the student to critically think, to work through complex problems in their area of study, and to effectively help the student 'teach themselves' in the long run.
