My students find me patient, understanding, and (occasionally) amusing.
Prior to becoming an English teacher, I worked for a number of years as a writer and editor and have been published in many magazines and newspapers.
I can help with figuring out what the prompt is really asking for, deciding what to write, editing what was written, and proofing before final submission.
I can also help with understanding the sometimes silly, often arbitrary, and never-without-exceptions rules of English grammar and spelling, and how to figure out what words mean without memorizing a dictionary.
English is the way most people in this country communicate, so it is a necessary evil for future engineers, musicians, computer game programmers, ballerinas, and tattoo artists alike. The better one is able to communicate, the less likely one is to feel that no one understands...
Let me help.
