I am pleased to be tutoring with WyzAnt to help students of all ages - as young as third grade to adults to improve their writing skills. I help students develop their thoughts and organization of their paper, learn how to understand the main idea of their literature, and improve their grammar.
I also aid college-bound students to create a unique and compelling essay to help them be accepted to their college choices.
In addition, I have the skills for editing a novel. So, if you are an author who needs a pass on your soon-to-be best seller, I would be glad to help.
Finally, I can help with public speaking tips - not as a professional speaker, but one who has spoken at many occasions and have won awards through Toastmasters, a professional speaking club.
I offer more than 15 years of experience in writing and editing in technical and nontechnical work. I have written technical and marketing documents for corporations and nonprofits, so I am knowledgeable of many styles of writing. In addition, I have experience with public speaking and interviewing. I received a B.A. Degree in English from University of California at Berkeley and have taken post-degree coursework at other colleges, such as Bellevue College.
My students say I have patience and creativity. I enjoy working with many types of personalities and learning styles. Having traveled around the world, I have an understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment when working with students from different cultures. Please read my reviews under "Student Feedback" to see what others say about my tutoring.
I would like to clarify that my work with international students to improve their spoken and written English is most useful when the student has a basic understanding, maybe four years of practice, since I am not an ESL teacher. My lower ratings of three stars come from my trying to help these students. I apologize for trying and now direct those students to an ESL expert. However, I am glad to help improve speaking and writing proper English once a student is at a comfortable level with the language.
If you need a patient and creative teacher for grammar, structuring an essay, or improving a novel or speech, please contact me through WyzAnt. I can aid you in writing a paper from the beginning, give your paper a quick grammatical check, or assist you with a longer improvement program of your English skills.
My hours are flexible and I am willing to travel to you within 6 miles of my home. I will travel a bit further if we arrange for at least a two-hour session. Should you be questioning if I am the correct tutor for yourself or your child, I offer a 30-minute introductory session for just $10.
Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you through WyzAnt.
