Dear Prospective Student and Parents.
I have taught developmental writing
at Lewis and Clark Community College in Godfrey, Illinois for one semester and then at St. Louis Community College at Forest Park and at the Harrison Educational Center for the past three years. These are classes to aid students who need refresher courses to pick up what they missed in high school English
; therefore, I am well suited to tutoring high school and college students or adults. My method of tutoring is to closely review your speech
and writing samples. That way, I can assess your strengths and weaknesses and determine in what areas you need help. Then I will tailor my lessons to meet your needs. I do not believe in wasting our time and your money going over material that you have already mastered. I believe in giving positive comments where it is due and offering corrective suggestions whenever needed. That is how you will improve. When I edit a finished piece, I will, with your approval, note the corrections.
If I sound like someone you'd like to have tutor or edit for you, then please notify me. I look forward to hearing from you. As far as my credentials, please see below. If you would like a proper curriculum vitae, please e-mail and I will forward one.
I am writer. I hold an undergraduate degree in writing from University of Missouri-St. Louis where I was a member of Alpha Sigma Lambda, the Evening College Honor Society, and Sigma Tau Delta, the International English Honor Society. I won scholarships for graduate school for three consecutive years from the St. Louis Journalism
Society. I hold a Master of Fine Arts degree, also from University of Missouri-St. Louis. I am a member of the St. Louis Poetry Society, the St. Louis Writers Guild and the Missouri Writers Guild.
I have won two coveted Bronze Quill Awards from the International Association of Business
Communicators (IABC), one in editing
and the other in public relations writing. Additional awards for my short stories and poetry came from University of Missouri-St. Louis and the St. Louis Poetry Center. I am published in the genres of poetry, short stories-fiction, non-fiction, and magazine article, and on-line newsletters. I am a regular contributor to the website of Walrus Publishing.com. Feel free to click on their website to see samples of my writing. Thank you.
