PROFESSIONALS, COLLEGE STUDENTS, HIGH SCHOOL, MIDDLE SCHOOL, EVERY ONE...As a former English teacher, educational business owner, and an aspiring author, I know that learning how to put your thoughts on paper or speaking in front of an audience in a clear, thoughtful and memorable way can be a nightmare. My goal is ultimately to help you to learn how to understand what it takes to use your skills and learning style to become not only a better writer and/or speaker but also a confident and self-assured one. We will discuss your needs and determine the best path to take with your endeavors. We can assess your skills and determine if you need to spend some time with grammar, content, voice, etc. I will help you find ways to create and develop ideas and topics. I also will suggest different methods for developing an writing piece or a speech depending upon your audience.
I have a B.S. in education and taught middle school language arts (reading incorporated into a writing-based curriculum) as well as high school English and public speaking. My Master's in an MA in English education, again with a writing focus. I've also directed school musicals and plays and began working on a PhD in process drama. As the owner/operator of a supplemental education business, I worked with students of all ages (six through 56 actually), and I am quite successful with listening and helping individuals realize their potential and ability. I am a proofreader/editor for educators studying to become master teachers as well. My background has prepared me to work one-on-one to enable others to be successful. I hope we can work together soon.
I look forward to helping you find your passion about your writing and speaking skills!
