Up until this point in my life, my most valuable work has taken the form of peer tutoring and class instruction. My history with the mentoring profession goes back as far as high school when I began tutoring peers at the Wade Edwards Learning Lab for the National Honors Society. When I joined the team at Appalachian State University Tutorial Services, I quickly progressed from being a math, English, Interdisciplinary Studies, and Spanish tutor to being a lab manager within my first year of work. These experiences along with working for the Writing Center at ASU have equipped me with the capability to collaborate efficiently and productively with fellow students and community members even with time constraints on consultations. Mentoring peers in the realm of academia, especially with their writing, has been an important part of my student and professional life as it is a position that permits me to help others make pragmatic advances in their schoolwork that will also be significant later in their careers. Now, as a continuing graduate student of English and a former instructor of first-year college Rhetoric & Composition, I am looking forward to bring my professional and academic experience to the private tutoring sector where my expertise can aid in fostering communities of lifelong learners.
