WRITERLY WRITING -- ENGLISH GRAMMAR -- COPYEDITING/PROOFREADING
Too often we hear that students are sorely lacking in their writing and English grammar skills. This can be remedied with the right tutor. I am a twice-published novelist and nonfiction writer. I have been doing this successfully for more than 10 years.
I enjoy working with teens and adults. I've also worked extensively with fellow writers, who are working on novels, short stories or even nonfiction, and who wish to be published. Finally, I've worked as a professional copyeditor/proofreader for newspapers and manuscripts.
I enjoy working with foreign students and have taught ESL students both privately and in a classroom setting.
