Questions

Subject: Writing

TutorMe
Question:

I do not consider myself to be a very good writer, do not enjoy writing, and past teachers have given me negative feedback. What is the point of improving at something I do not enjoy?

Answer:

A lot of students feel that way, and I have often found that negative feedback from instructors can make that feeling worse. It is okay if writing is not your forte. But at the same time, written communication is an essential skill for being a successful student, and improving your writing will help you communicate better for the rest of your life. My approach seeks to move past this concept of 'good writers' and 'bad writers' to simply 'people who write stuff.' We all have to write stuff sometimes and effective writers are often the ones who frequently seek out help. And a good tutor is not a tyrant with a red pen. Instead, they look for strengths and weaknesses in the writing itself and have a constructive conversation around making improvements.

Question:

Can you help me find themes in the books I am reading outside of what are considered to be literary "classics?"

Answer:

Of course! While classic British and American literature has been talked about extensively, which can provide a lot of reference points for building ideas, some of the most interesting writing I have done/read has been on lesser known works of literature. Not only that, but writing about works outside of the literary canon can be more fun and unique! There are themes and powerful ideas in a lot of different types of writing and I would be glad to help students explore them.
