If you're looking for some help with reading, writing, speaking, spelling, or pronunciation, I can bring many years of experience to your table, having started my career at the elementary level and working my way up into high school and even college. I graduated from Regis University with a major in English and a minor in Spanish, and I've taught both subjects in schools. Later I got my Master's Degree in English Education, concentrating on teaching reading, writing, grammar and ESL at any level. I've also worked in private corporations as an English pronunciation coach for their foreign engineers.

I'm a world traveler, and in 2003 I went to Peru to research the mysterious Nazca Lines. In 2004 I published a bilingual children's book (English/Spanish) about these famous line drawings and the woman who discovered them for the world.

While I have technically retired from classroom teaching, I still have more years to do what I love best, and that is helping students one-on-one, like you, to excel in school. I'm open to students of any age to improve their language skills with English or Spanish.

Elementary (K-6th)

When I first began teaching Language Arts, I started teaching Grades 4, 5, and 6, where I worked on writing, grammar and reading. When I got my Master's Degree in English Education, I took higher level courses on how to teach all the basic English skills.

English

I have taught writing skills at every level. These include sentence structure, paragraph development, and essay organization. Other skills I've taught include grammar, punctuation and vocabulary.

Phonics

When I taught children at the lower grades, I worked on phonics with them. Later, when I taught Pronunciation to ESL students, I had to spend a great amount of time on Vowel and Consonant sounds and their combinations that produce certain sounds in English.

Great writing tutor for my 10 year old son Anita took the necessary time with my son to assess his writing improvement needs and has come up with a plan to help him. I've seen some of the tools she has used with him to generate thoughts and add color to his writing and they are great. Her approach is working, as I have been impressed with the writing my son has done so far. She gives him appropriate assignments that he can work on his own ...
