Hello, my name is Rebecca Brown. I am a tutor here at Honolulu Community College at the Writing Center, and I love my job because I love helping people learn the importance of writing and helping people gain confidence in their own writing.

English 100, 257, 255
ESL tutor
Reading tutor
E-tutor (send your paper to the tutor over email and the tutor sends it back to you with some advice)
Online Tutor (work on your paper with a tutor over video chat)

Many students just don't believe they can do it. That's what they've always been told. I heard the same thing, people telling me I shouldn't go to college. Realizing that I could do it was the first step. I want to help students develop the confidence to be successful."
