Dear Students,
I am a professional writer and a college English teacher. I just completed my Master's in English and have years of teaching experience. I have taught English as a Second Language in Istanbul, Turkey; freshman composition at Fresno City College and Fresno State, and development English at Reedley college. I have also helped tutor and mentor budding journalists and writers at Woodlake High School!
I'll teach you how to say what you want to say! I am a professional writer and an English teacher with years of experience. I can make you a better writer and speaker of English! My approach is very hands-on and customized to each individual student I work with. I can help make you a better writer and teach you how to write in a way that will help get you the results you want--whether it's writing a business letter, resume, working on a thesis, a college admission letter or just trying to better your English writing skills.
My specialty is working with students one-on-one. I have a very interactive, gentle approach that consists of first understanding what the student wants to say and then giving him/her ideas about how to "talk the process" out, brainstorm, write it and rewrite it until the finished product shines.
