Everybody thinks they're a bad writer. It's very easy for any student to pull up an essay they've written and rattle off what they think is "wrong" about it. We all spend so much time in the process of thinking in our writing that we ingrain the frustrations that come with it more than we do the excellence that comes out of it.
The truth is that there's no such thing as bad writing. That's what I tell anyone I've ever tutored who opens with, "I'm a bad writer." Often, the person that says that just simply hasn't had the right person reading their drafts or asking them questions about their writing process. They're the most susceptible people to remembering those frustrations over the excellent thoughts they tried to articulate.
I know I can be the right person guiding a frustrated writer, because I've been it many times before. I've copy-edited dozens of stories per week for Rowan's award-winning newspaper, The Whit. I've worked with classmates on their persuasive, analysis, narrative, "cause and effect", fiction, and opinionated essays. I helped a friend with a reading disability improve her essay grades to A's without changing anything that she's writing.
That friend doesn't call herself a "bad writer" anymore, because she knows better than that. I'm a cheap, young, professional writer with some downtime and a growing interest in teaching and writing.
HobbiesI'm a big fan of New York sports teams, current music and movies. I have a 16-year-old brother that I get along with better than I do most people. As a tutor, I'm hard-working, but have always been complimented for being patient and positive. Being a very recent college graduate, I know how tough it can be for a student not understanding some assignments, and I never stretch thin in trying to explain it.
