Alongside my job as a tutor, I am Editor in Chief of the Tower Literary Magazine and Vice President of the Upsilon Rho chapter of Sigma Tau Delta (English honor society). I primarily help with MLA formatting, proofreading for clarity and grammatical accuracy, and guiding students through analyzing rather than summarizing in their papers.
