Tutor profile: Elita K.
I need help with grammar on my paper. I always get marked down for grammar.
Sure I am happy to take a look at your grammar. While I look, is it OK if I notice anything else, like where you might need support for an argument, to give you that feedback as well? I'd like to start by reading aloud some of the passages to you to see what you think when you hear someone else read it. Then we can go through and look at any errors and discuss how to fix it. Sound good?
Subject: Study Skills
I need some study skills and test taking strategies. Can you help?
Sure. I can help you locate some books and articles that will provide you with these tips and strategies. Let's start by having you tell me a bit about your preferences with regard to how and when you like to study. I can provide some tips that way too. For example, if you are a visual learner you may find it helpful to draw things to help you remember. We can discuss mnemonic devices that will help you study and remember information as well as ways to "chunk" information or break it down into smaller pieces. Sound good?
Subject: Library and Information Science
I have to write a research paper for a class and need scholarly articles. Can you help?
Sure, tell me which university you attend and your topic and I can walk you through searching the library databases. I can show you how to search for articles on your topic by keywords, how to save the articles, how to locate the correct citation and how you can tell you are locating the correct source types.
