“My writing tutor philosophy is simple: everyone’s voice should be heard. When a student comes to see me for help with writing (either voluntarily or as a requirement for their class), I take their projects seriously and am sure they know that I am there to bring out their maximum potential and uniqueness. It is very important to me that students feel comfortable enough to be their true self, to not be afraid to talk about sensitive subjects or be insecure about their writing skills. I don’t expect all students to love writing (especially since I know I will never love things like math), but I do hope to ease their fears, guide them through the process, and empower them to feel they can tackle even the most daunting of writing assignments.”
Tammy was a graduate writing tutor for almost four years at the University Writing Center at The University of Alabama at Birmingham. She is currently accepting new undergraduate/graduate writing students, as well as high school seniors applying to colleges. Tammy can also help with résumés and scholarship applications.
