I worked as a writing tutor with undergraduate and graduate students to work on their writing, from ESL courses and English 101 to graduate seminar papers. I helped students from all socioeconomic backgrounds, both traditional and nontraditional students. I especially focused on helping foreign exchange students and immigrant students in their essay-writing skills.
