Hello, my name is Peg.
I have a lifelong love of words and language, and a BA degree from Towson State University. I studied Spanish for seven years and have helped Spanish speakers learn practical English, from translating a bus schedule to shopping for groceries. I have tutored a young Bengali man online to help him increase his English vocabulary. I have helped a friend from France translate both prose and poetry into English. I will customize your tutoring sessions to emphasize vocabulary that will help you gain English fluency for work or educational use.
I proofread both nonfiction and fiction. My most recent fiction proofreading credit is for a science fiction novel released December 2012. My name is listed in the acknowledgements as part of the proofreading team.
I am ADD myself, and have experience with developing techniques to help restore study focus. People with ADD tend to be bright, creative, and generous, so there are many positive aspects of ADD. My emphasis is on accentuating the positive, and also on developing skills to manage challenges, like restlessness and impulsive actions.
I have Skype access and can tutor online as well as in person in the Blacksburg, VA, area.
I look forward to hearing from you!
