Meet Our Tutors
English Department tutors are available to help students both at the English Department Writing Center on the main San Marcos campus and at the Teaching Learning Center (TLC) at the Escondido campus. If you would like to work with a particular English tutor, please call extension 2778 to make an appointment; we will refer you to the Escondido TLC if your requested tutor is currently assigned there.
I began tutoring writing while working towards my Bachelor's degree at Cal-State San Marcos. At the CSUSM Writing Center, I discovered what a joy it is to work with students on a one-on-one basis -- helping develop ideas, fine-tuning arguments, and working together to make writing as clear as possible.
Before graduating from Cal-State San Marcos, I was a student at Palomar. I loved my time here! It's absolutely wonderful to be a part of the school that made such a difference in my own education.
I began at Palomar, transferred to CSUSM, and earned a B.A. in Sociology. While there, I received a Level II CRLA Tutoring certificate, and landed a job with a publisher in La Costa where I wrote the restaurant review, edited articles and learned about publishing. My master’s degree in professional writing from SDSU came in 2011. Recently, I had a flash fiction horror story published in SDSU’s 2013 Pacific Review Journal called, Avenging Trigger.
My name is Liz.This is my first year as a writing consultant at Palomar College. I began teaching English in 2006 and love writing, literature, and the creative energy of the classroom. I also work as a freelance writer for regional magazines and newspapers. I am excited for the opportunity to work collaboratively with students on the writing process. I look forward to seeing you at the English Department's Writing Center!
I have a BA in English Literature and an MA in English Composition, and this is my second year as a writing tutor at Palomar. I began writing tutoring as an undergrad at the University of Redlands, where I also received my single subject teaching credential. I love teaching, whether in a classroom setting or one-on-one. I love working with writers at all stages of the writing process, and am looking forward to working with students here at Palomar!
