I am a mother of three, grandmother of five, retired corporate manager, writer, poet, and generally a terrific person.

I have been teaching creative writing for the past seven years as well as facilitating workshops for seniors with low-level Alzheimer's. I am TEFL certified to teach ESL as well. I love to help others realize their potential in the English language, reading comprehension, and/or composition.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Writing

I provide assistance with essay writing, creative writing, and poetry. Focus is on structure, voice, point of view, and vocabulary. I am a believer of writing as expression, so my process is to help the student express themselves clearly first, then work on grammar, vocabulary, spelling, organization, and structure.

The most important step for a student to grow in writing is to feel comfortable in the process; to feel comfortable, a writer must enjoy writing, and to enjoy writing, one must feel a connection to the words. Without a connection, it is merely something that needs doing for a grade - this will not carry through.
