I am a lifelong reader, learner and writer. I have a degree in English from the University of Oregon. Samples of my writing, including articles, poetry and a little short fiction may be seen by request.
I was going to be a teacher and now wish I had been, but spent years in the business world of title insurance instead. Even in that business, I was involved in education, designing and presenting classes for new real estate agents and lenders. I trained many people over the years in the basics of title insurance.
I am also a poet and belong to a writing group that meets and critiques each other's work regularly.
As to my methods of tutoring, I want to start where the problem is, whether it is basic grammar, writing technique, reading or interpreting literature. Once that is established, perhaps from teacher's notes or parental input, I will design a method to work on the specific problem.
I am now qualified on WyzAnt to tutor in American History as well.
