Work Experience

Work Experience
NetTutor, Online essay tutor and paper reviewer
2020 - Present
At NetTutors, I work part-time as an independent contractor. I prioritize global issues such as structuring an academic essay around a clear, specific, and focused thesis statement. I also address mechanics and grammar as needed. Instead of editing line-by-line, however, I employ the Socratic Method to encourage students to probe their writing topics more deeply. In this way, I aim to promote independent learning and empowerment.
