I am writing in response to your ad in the Emerald regarding a writing tutor position in the English Department and the University of Oregon this summer. I understand this to be a part-time job from June through September assisting ESL and Introductory English students in writing essays and creative papers for summer classes. I am perfect for this position in regard to my education, experience and proximity.
I am currently attending the University of Portland as an English major with a minor in Creative Writing. I hope to teach high school English upon graduation. I am a junior this year and will be returning to my parents' home in Eugene for the summer, where I hope to continue to strengthen my skills as a writer and a teacher. I am a full-time student with a 4.0 grade point average. I also work part time in the UP writing center as an assistant. I correct essays and coach students on the structure of a paper, including thesis statements, enthymemes, introductions, conclusions and textual evidence. I have a passion for the written word, and I love to help others discover that passion as well while they develop these essential skills.
Attached is my resume. I can also provide letters of recommendation upon request. I look forward to hearing from you at a mutually agreeable time. Thank you for your consideration.
