I am from Lithuania and learning English was one of the scariest obstacles I've ever had to overcome. The frustration of not knowing what to say or how to say it is more than familiar, and grammar was NOT my best friend. The difficulties did not stop me from falling in love with the language. My career as a writing tutor began at College of DuPage. The diversity of students, styles, and topics I have encountered fascinate me to this day. I believe that collaborating to improve a piece of writing is an opportunity for me to learn as well. I cannot wait to start working at the Writing Center here at Elmhurst, and help others become better writers!
