Laura Barnes graduated in 2010 from Grove City College with a BA in English, and she has since been teaching English as a Foreign Language in China. Before her college and China days, Laura was a writing student of Rusty Gorby, who helped instill a love of the writing and editing process in her. In college, Laura enjoyed copy-editing and proof-reading for various publications on campus, and she also spent time editing papers for her friends in the frantic hours before they turned them in. In China, Laura taught lessons on grammar, writing, and conversational English to a large number of middle school students every week, and also enjoyed tutoring high school students to help them improve their English skills. Laura returned to the U.S. this summer, and she is excited to help students improve their writing skills and learn to love writing in its many forms.
