I just reached my three-year anniversary of tutoring for WyzAnt. I love tutoring and helping students of all ages - elementary school to adults - to improve their writing
skills. I tailor my teaching to the individual needs of each student, guiding them through the organization
of their thoughts and the structure of their paper, creating clear sentences, and using proper grammar
Other specialties include:
Guiding college-bound students write unique and compelling essays to increase their chances of being accepted by their college choices. Editing
and giving content feedback for novels. So, if you are an author who needs a pass on your soon-to-be best seller, I would be pleased to help. My rates are negotiable from the posted rate.
Organization and feedback for oral presentations, such as in class talks or professional presentations.
I have more than 15 years of experience in technical and nontechnical writing. I received a BA in English
from University of California, Berkeley, where I wrote literary papers. My writing experience includes technical documentations, marketing
documents for corporations and nonprofits, and simple news releases. So, I am knowledgeable of many styles of writing. In addition, I have experience with public speaking
and interviewing. I have also taken post-graduate courses at other colleges, such as Bellevue College, and I am currently improving my speaking skills as a member of a local Toastmasters Club.
My students seem to enjoy my patient and creative teaching style. I enjoy working with many styles of learning and personalities types. Having travelled around the world, I have an understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment when working with students from different cultures.
My hours are flexible and I am willing to travel to you within 6 miles of my home. Although I always start the first few lessons in a library or coffee shop. I will travel a bit further if we arrange for a different hourly rate or at least a two-hour session.
Please read my reviews under "Student Feedback" to see what others have said about my tutoring. Should you not be sure if I am the correct tutor for yourself or your child, I offer a 30-minute introductory session for just $10.
If you need a patient and creative teacher for grammar, structuring an essay
, or improving a novel or speech
, please contact me. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you through WyzAnt.
