Want success without all of the stress? With my help, you can achieve your goal: earn an A, get a grant, finish your dissertation, edit your manuscript, break writer's block, get into college or graduate school, become a certified teacher, improve your writing
and speaking skills, plan your future, and gain confidence. I love the hard work that is weighing you down, and I love working one-on-one with students or professionals and on my own with my computer
, so unburden yourself and contact me. I will listen to your needs and offer personal, professional mentoring or editorial solutions that you can trust and afford.
My experience and credentials speak for themselves. For over 10 years I have taught writing, oral communication, and literature
at UNC-CH. For 20 years, I have served as a private tutor, editor
, and mentor for students of all ages, levels, and interests. I have prepared aspiring teachers to pass the PRAXIS
II Subject Assessments by teaching them to unpack prompts, understand the criteria for success, plan responses, and write well in timed scenarios. I have also prepared college students for graduate school. I have mentored over 40 students from underrepresented populations who were writing research projects for honors programs and graduate school applications. I love working one-on-one with people, and my clients appreciate that I not only know how to teach but also know how to listen and empathize. I know that academic work can be challenging; I have experience planning, researching, writing, and revising my own academic thesis and dissertation. When I tutor others, I convey the strategies that helped me and have helped my clients. My client base is diverse. I have edited manuscripts on topics ranging from German
literature to mitochondrial dna. I have technical writing expertise as well. I have taught writing in the sciences, social sciences, humanities, and business
. I have maintained websites for departments at UNC-CH, created online learning opportunities, and helped non-profits and campus organizations through service-learning partnerships. Whether you are an individual looking for a qualified and compassionate tutor for yourself or a family member or a job seeker hoping to improve your resume, cover letter, or interviewing techniques, I can help you. I earned the Erika Lindemann Award for Teaching Excellence and Innovation at UNC because I made learning relevant and fun. I look forward to equipping, empowering, and supporting you!
