I have been writing for as long as I can remember. I took as many English courses during high school as I could, excelling at Creative Writing. I completed a writing refresher class several years ago, aced my college English class, and am currently enrolled in a grammar refresher class. I have worked as a Bank Teller, Call Center Trainer, Harbor Master's Office Manager, Facilities Coordinator, Massage Therapist, and even spent time in the NAVY. The one common thread I found in all of my jobs since high school (1996) is that excellent written communication stands out everywhere you go. Whether on a resume or an email, typos, run-ons, misspelled words, etc., will affect your credibility. But it's hard to catch everything when you've been staring at a paper for long hours, and it's hard to clarify your point when you're tired. Not to mention, writing isn't everyone's strong point, and sometimes what really matters is getting the assignment done on time. This is where I would like to help. I have an eye for common mistakes, misused vocabulary, and I'm also good at making a clear point without being wordy. Beyond my own writing interests, I assist small businesses with polishing up their blogs and website content. I have also edited stories for publication. My fee is negotiable, so please do not be shy in asking for help.
I have extensive experience with fitness which includes the areas of nutrition, physical exercise and sports. I was the Fitness Petty Officer while serving the NAVY where I was responsible for my division's ability to pass the semi-annual physical fitness test. I coached in eating habits, exercising for fun and health. I also maintained motivation by running along side my shipmates and by empowering them throughout the year to stay fit.
I think grammar is usually the sore spot for many people simply because, without practice, it's easy to forget the rules. The comma, for example, is either over-used or under-used, and that one piece of grammar can affect your grade.
Reading comprehension assignments can be confusing and frustrating. I can help you to pinpoint the information you need and to gain full understanding of your reading.
I am a Sociology major transferring from Palomar College in San Marcos, CA to California State University in San Marcos, CA. I will be transferring in Fall 2014. My grades in the subject have all been A's.
I have learned over the years very efficient ways to take notes, how to find information that may have been lost during lectures, and how to quickly figure out the most efficient way to study for each subject. Forming study groups and knowing how to keep the group on task is a skill I can also teach. Also, I can show students ways to connect with the material that makes the most sense to their way of learning.
Basic writing techniques are harder to learn now than ever before thanks to the constant exposure to blogging, texting, email and other new media which does not require skill. I can help you develop your writing skills so that, no matter what your venue is, you stand out and your making the grade.
