I am a recently retired school teacher looking to supplement my pension with tutorial work. After teaching middle school and high school English in the Fairfax County Public School System in Virginia, I moved back to Southern California in 2009 when my husband's project was completed. English is my specialty having been deemed "highly qualified" after the Virginia Educational System adopted qualification standards for teachers. I taught special education students and have tutored general education high school and college students in such areas as writing (expository, narrative, creative writing, persuasive, etc.), reading, and organization skills.
My background also includes 35 years in business and marketing working for such firms as MCI/WorldCom, The Geneva Companies, and Bechtel Power Corporation. After earning a Master's in Education at Marymount University in Virginia, I began teaching students with learning disabilities. After two years as a teacher, I was asked to become Department Chair.
Although I lived in Virginia for 15 years, my home is Southern California. My hope is that tutoring work will allow me to continue to participate in the educational process and make a difference in students' lives.
