I have a bachelor's degree from CSU Northridge in Religious Studies (graduated with honors.) I also grew up in a Christian home with intensive Bible study.
I taught Bible at Pilgrim Preparatory School in Los Angeles for one year. I was asked to teach Bible from a historical and literary perspective, not a devotional perspective.
Writing has been a favorite part of my life starting with my first project, which was to put together a book of my poems for my mother at the age of seven (and they were probably poems that only a mother could love!) However, since that time I have written and published articles, written web copy, tutored writing for SAT students, and worked with students of all ages on everything from whipping out five-paragraph essays to crafting careful essays for graduate school application packets.
My students learn how to organize their thoughts, write to a deadline and show that they are intelligent and well read in an essay. They also often learn to enjoy the writing process, although not always. . .it really is more fun to write when you take the steps in order and know what you are doing!
