Do you need help with writing assignments? Understanding the ins and outs of social studies, history and government? That's where I come in.

As a middle school and community college teacher and as a long-time professional magazine and newspaper journalist, I'm on intimate terms with the English language. Over the years, I've helped hundreds of students throughout the Phoenix area become confident, skilled writers, and I can help you as well! Writing doesn't have to be a frightening chore. I can provide you with the tools you need to tackle virtually every type of writing assignment you'll face in a step-by-step fashion.

In addition to writing and literature, social studies is a passion of mine. I've taught and tutored history and government, and I'm fully capable of helping you in those areas as well.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

An experienced teacher of all things English. In addition to teaching and tutoring English and English as a Second Language at Phoenix College, I've taught middle school and have extensive experience tutoring children and adults.

In addition to my background as a teacher, I spent many years as a writer and editor in business and with a number of newspapers.

ESL/ESOL

I have 18 graduate-level credits in English as a Second Language (ESL) and currently teach ESL at Phoenix College and Mesa Community College, both of which are part of Arizona's Maricopa Community College District.

Grammar

From 2007 to 2010, I taught middle school language arts, which includes extensive work in basic grammar. For many years, I've taught several grammar and writing courses as part of the English as a Second Language programs at Phoenix College and Mesa Comunity College.
