25 year old American masters student at the University of Edinburgh working on my dissertation.
I am a passionate student of the ancient world and an excellent writer, having graduated my undergraduate degree at the University of Edinburgh with first class honours. During my masters this year I have also averaged first class marks. Though my own expertise is in ancient Greece and Rome, I love history in general, am well read, and am excellent at revision.
Consistently throughout the past five years of collegiate-level education I have acted as the go-to editor for my friends' papers, and have been told that those assignments with which I helped them regularly received higher marks. I have an excellent grasp on English grammar, syntax, spelling, and how to properly and convincingly structure and argue a point in writing.
Though I have not worked as a private tutor before, I have extensive experience working with children and providing homework help. I do have marginal experience as an instructor, having been asked to teach an undergraduate lecture on Roman empresses this past fall. I am happy to work with any age group at any educational level, and intend to work in academia in the future!
I am more than happy to provide references upon request and am excited by the prospect of working in education!
