America was built from the ideas of many great men and women from diverse ethnic backgrounds. We are a proud country and the true melting pot. I am inspired to teach, because I'm interested in bringing considerate thought and discussion into the classroom. My years teaching English Grammar/Composition, at the College of Southern Nevada, have been the most rewarding years of my career!! I'm dedicated to any task I undertake. When it comes to working with students and expanding their knowledge, I am patient, I am approachable and I believe in them, even when other people in their lives don't. I teach outside of the box. My methods are efficient and effective. Expanding the minds of people, broadening their global understanding and educating them about their culture and their significance in the American context, has always been an undertaking and a focus of mine. I believe that my strong liberal arts background from Vassar College has prepared me to teach courses in English Literature/Composition and Africana Studies. My Masters Degree in Journalism from The Medill School at Northwestern University has armed me with the skills to teach communications and media literacy courses. My extensive career with the PBS network, in the areas of Programming and Production, has inspired me to approach life and people with a passion to educate. Every student has a gift waiting to be opened.

English

I am a journalist, by profession, and have worked in radio, television, print newspaper and magazine. I also spent 15 years as a writer/producer for various national documentaries on PBS. So, my writing experience is extensive and award-winning. I currently post a regular column with The Examiner online on Holistic Health. English, grammar and writing are symbiotic and crucial to professional success.

Grammar

Proper grammar is the bridge to understanding and communicating. As an award-winning journalist, my professional integrity rests on my ability to master grammar and writing. Let me help you become a "grammar master" on your journey to professional development and/or student success!

Reading

Through my experiences as a college English/writing professor, I find that an increasing number of my students encounter difficulties with reading comprehension. Let me help you accomplish your reading goals with my simple, tried-and-true, method for success in reading comprehension.

Vocabulary

Having an extensive vocabulary is crucial in today's professional landscape. It is not only important to speak well and say what you mean, but also to know what you are saying! You don't have to spell well to know a myriad of definitions. What you do need to know is the root meaning of vocabulary words that may impact your life.

Writing

To write well, in today's society, is to be understood. I am an award-winning journalist in radio, television and print and I am eager to assist you in learning and mastering the many genres of prose that will increase your success as a student and/or working professional.
