Tutor profile: Sarah O.
College writing professor, passionate about helping students succeed
I live in Los Angeles and teach writing at the university level. In my free time I enjoy running, knitting, and playing video games.
I earned my PhD in English at UT Austin in 2015. While there, I taught college literature and writing courses and tutored students in the University Writing Center. I've subsequently taught at Smith College and the University of California Irvine. At present, I teach writing and critical thinking at the University of Southern California.
