Tutor profile: Matthew F.
What sorts of writing are you able to tutor in?
I can tutor in rhetorical analysis, literary analysis, and creative writing--prose or poetry. I also dabble in tutoring for people who need help with their psychology papers, sociology papers, and philosophy papers.
Where does the true meaning of a piece of literature lie?
The true meaning of any literary work is somewhere between the reader and the text itself. Each reader of a text will bring a different interpretation to a text because of their own schema. It is important to note, however, that there needs to be textual evidence for any claim made regarding that text.
What is your first priority when asessing an essay?
I concentrate on the content of the paper first; I check to see if the paper is accomplishing what the prompt is asking before proceeding to check for grammatical errors.
