ยซ Perfect! I'm a French Canadian who is learning English. Hillary is an excellent teacher. I am still impressed by her capacity to adapt her tutoring style to me. I'm not the easiest student to teach... she is doing great. I like being on our Friday night call. To learn English in a secure area and without pressure, I choose Hillary! ยป

UWO Grad Student Assisting with Essay Writing Skills at all Academic Levels

Methodology

It is my preference to use essay outlines when starting a paper as they help you structure your ideas. I can help you with the formation of a solid and effective essay outline at the beginning of a project if this is a concern. I also believe that feedback is what helps essay writers improve and because of this I will provide you with detailed verbal and written feedback to refer to when editing.

Background

I am a graduate student and teaching assistant at Western University. I grade essays at the university level and provide students with feedback professionally. Reaching that minimum word-count or forming a strong argument can seem challenging but with help and feedback it can be a breeze!

Hillary is completing her masters degree at Western University this spring and is well qualified in the field of anthropology. One of the her experiences that I found fascinating was her work with 3D printing of fragile artifacts so the originals could be securely stored' and the copies could be available for studies. Hillaryi is a hard working, knowledgeable, congenial person; you would do well to seek her services.

Yuko

Her ways of teaching is very professional, and is also very neat. She always checks out the mistakes I have made in my sentences, and helps me to fix it. My English marks has improved very much after she started to tutor me in these past three months. She even checks my work after the tutoring and gives the feed backs which is really helpful. If you are needing help with your gramers and essays works, I totally will recommend you to take her session.

Interview with Hillary

QUESTION 01 | 05
When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field?
Hillary โ€” I began studying anthropology and archaeology after taking an aptitude test in high school. Archaeology blended a lot of my interests and became a bit of a passion for me. I started teaching while in grad school and loved it! I love sharing the writing skills that my disciplines have taught me.
QUESTION 02 | 05
What makes you passionate about your subject?
Hillary โ€” Teaching in general is something I really enjoy because I get to see so much progress. Those improvements (major or minor) are what make me passionate about teaching.
QUESTION 03 | 05
What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?
Hillary โ€” I love learning from students. I used to think of teaching as really one sided where the instructor is the one giving instruction and feedback, but it is more than that. Teaching students at the high school level and above is so much fun because all students have so much to bring to the table. Some of the discussions that I have had with students about the books they are reading are so thought provoking and interesting!
QUESTION 04 | 05
Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Hillary โ€” I had an instructor that focused a lot on building up academic confidence in their students. This made a huge difference for me!
QUESTION 05 | 05
What are your keys to success?
Hillary โ€” 1. Be yourself, don't worry about what your peers are doing and the grades they are getting.
2. Don't use a thesaurus unless you really know what you are doing (I promise it usually does not go well)
3. Stretch yourself outside of your comfort zone. It is easy to play it safe, but that isn't always the best way to learn.
4. Have fun!
