I love to help people with their writing! And I've been doing it for ten years, first as an editor and then as a teacher.
Since moving to Rochester, I have tutored students of all ages in English skills, including grammar, writing, and reading. Before moving to Rochester, I taught grammar, writing, public speaking, and general computer skills at a technical college in Illinois. Before teaching at the college, I was an editor for eight years. I have also taught ESL.
In my master's program in education, I researched best practices for teaching grammar. As an undergraduate at a liberal arts university, I studied writing, linguistics, and three foreign languages (I have studied other languages at different times, too). I took public speaking in my other master's program. All of my degrees required extensive writing.
My research also includes student performance. Students achieve far more through effort than natural ability, though many are intimidated by writing or computer skills. I focus on changing those perceptions and equipping students with good study skills.
I love teaching more than anything else. My students know that I care about their well-being as well as their education. I would love to talk with you about your goals.
