For the past ten years I've worked as an Academic Skills and Writing Tutor with high school and college students. During my 25 year career as a Research Anthropologist I've conducted descriptive research (childhood obesity, physical and learning disabilities), taught independent studies and classes in research methods and academic writing (George Washington University, University of Maryland), and served as a communications specialist for the American Occupational Therapy Association. For the past year I've worked as a Writing Tutor with first generation and low-income students at Montgomery College (Rockville). The students I tutor are a mix of straight-ahead learners and students with learning disabilities and/or ADD/ADHD.
