I am a published writer (articles and one short story) who enjoys coaching beginning writers and others who wish to become more effective communicators. I have worked primarily with older adults who were working on book manuscripts, but am happy to work with teens and young adults.
In addition, I worked with McGraw-Hill Publishing for three years as a test evaluator. My content areas were reading comprehension, language arts and writing. Because I was responsible for scoring ISTEP short answer responses, I am able to communicate standards and expectations to the student and help them to evaluate the quality of their work, which should help him / her to be better prepared for standardized testing.
My areas of expertise include nonfiction writing (essays, articles, persuasive pieces, etc.), grammar, reading comprehension, vocabulary and phonics.
