Hello! I simply love helping others learn to write better! Currently, I am an adjunct English
and Humanities instructor at the University of Phoenix where I teach a variety of essay writing
and culture courses, communications, literature
and more. Naturally I have a lot of experience helping my students work on clarifying their main and supporting points into cohesive and paragraphs from the beginning to end of their assignments and also working extensively on mechanics, such as grammar
, punctuation and word usage/choices.
In addition to college students, I have also worked extensively with children and teenagers from K-12th grade in the public schools when I taught in the Seattle and Bellevue School Districts. Additionally I have tutored children and teenagers privately to help them with their reading
and writing skills, and thoroughly enjoyed it!
Recently, I just helped edit my niece and nephew's admission letters to graduate school, and I certainly can help with any other letters of admissions to undergraduate or graduate colleges or other schools or companies you may need.
Tutors have the ability to create educational resources and share them with the WyzAnt community.

I have found that this advice has...
