Hello, I will be pleased to help you develop a passion, as I have, for writing, English, or reading. I have always been excited about writing. First, as an elementary student creating poetry, as a teenager writing about social issues, and then as an adult writing magazine articles. The articles I write inform today's students about careers after college, and are published in collegiate magazines. I have an M.S. degree in Journalism and a Bachelor's degree in Public Administration and Journalism. As much as I enjoy writing, I like teaching others.
I have tutored students at a youth center in reading. One student's eyes lit up when she read her first few pages by herself with no prompting from me. What I find works and helps students succeed in reading is if they are tutored reading a book on topics they enjoy. Writing can be fun once the student learns sentence structure and grammar rules. I try to make learning fun. During a writing workshop one summer, one student told me he had never written a story. After tutoring him privately for a few weeks, he handed in three stories that he had written himself. He was very proud that he had accomplished what he initially feared.
Let's do it!!
