I have been tutoring or teaching students since 2015. I worked at Lamar University's Writing Center, assisting students in writing research papers, dissertations, scholarship essays, etc. At the Writing Center, I saw around 10 students per week. I had several students who came to me regularly who I saw grow and advance in their writing capabilities, raising failing or near failing grades to A's and B's. I am also beginning my second year at Veritas Classical Academy, teaching Ancient Literature and Rhetoric.
Over the years, Casey has helped me with numerous written assignments varying in length, style, and topic. I typically complete my papers and then email them to Casey asking her to edit them. In the past when I've had papers edited it has consisted of minor corrections to punctuation, grammar, and sentence structure, but with every paper I have given to Casey she has gone above my expectations of editing. She not only offers the correction, but she also explains why or how what the writer put was incorrect. In instances where sentences are unclear she offers possible replacements and explains how the replacement provides clarity to the reader. The amount of markups on my papers never feels overwhelming. Many of Casey's comments are compliments to what was written well or interesting, which is super encouraging to an unconfident writer like myself. Her comments are taught in an easily understandable way to those who don't really know the rules of English. With each new paper I write I keep in mind her past comments and try not to make the same mistake. With my improvement on old mistakes, Casey is able to make more advanced suggestions to my papers, improving my writing overall. I highly recommend Casey as not only a teacher, but also an encourager in the writing world.
I've known Casey Blanchard for almost five years. In that time, I've found her to be honest, hardworking, and sincere. She's intelligent and loves sharing her knowledge with others. Casey is a genuine person who dedicates herself to her endeavors and completes her tasks. In the past year, I've called on Casey a number of times to review papers for grammatical errors, completeness, and content. Her assistance has been invaluable to me.
I have every confidence that Casey Blanchard's assistance would be an asset to someone needing a tutor.
