An experienced Writing
Center Tutor at Houston Community College, I have had a high level of success with all levels of college and high school students, including Academic Levels, Developmental English
, and ESL
. I specialize in Business
English and work primarily with adult learners, but I can work with high school and college students. My niche group is often non-native English speakers whose English has been "good enough" but find themselves in a position at work or in their education where their writing skills need improvement. I preform an assessment and create individualized lessons that may encompass grammar
, sentence structure, paragraph unity, or simply staying on topic.
There is often a disconnect between what people know and how to express their expertise well in emails, sales letters, memos, proposals and other business writing. I can help executives and business professionals feel more comfortable when they approach the blank page, give assistance in getting past writers block, and show them how to say precisely and concisely what they mean to say.
I help at all stages of writing, from brainstorming for topics, ensuring that the writing addresses the topic or question at hand, to giving proofreading
tips. Adept at client-focused teaching, I am able to very quickly access the English level and writing aptitude, identify grammatical/sentence structure problems, and devise lesson plans to correct these problems. I connect well with clients and the nature of the help I provide increases their confidence in all levels of English, especially in writing.
I am Certified CELTA Instructor for teaching English to non-native speakers, a certfied Group Exercise and Pilates Instructor with experience teaching Yoga
, Pilates, and Piyo.
