Having difficulty starting that big research paper? Are you struggling with an idea for a short story or essay? Not sure about noun-verb agreement or sentence structure? Are SATs or ACTs coming up and you need a high English score? Well, I'm here to help you succeed in whatever English or writing challenge you might have.

My name is Patty and I have a degree in English. I have spent the last 22 years in executive positions where writing, editing, and creativity are an important part of my job. I currently head the communications division of a large bank and am responsible for all written employee communications. I have also tutored ESL students in English in the past with great results. I think writing is a lot of fun and I bet I can get you to think so, too. Let me help you improve your idea brainstorming process, your writing, grammar, and editing skills. Together, we can overcome any challenge!

I have certifications in: English, grammar, proofreading, public speaking, reading, SAT writing, vocabulary, and writing.

On a personal note, I am a Mom with two teenagers. My son is graduating from Austin Prep in May and is attending Boston University's Film School in the Fall. My daughter is a high honors student, has been class president, is a member of student council, and plays Varsity Lacrosse for her high school.
