About Judy

I've been an educator for 10 years, and I've always taught English and Reading. I also have five years of tutoring experience; I've worked with college students, as well as high school, middle school, and elementary students. Many college students that I've tutored in writing have shared with me that their grades improved once I started working with them. I enjoy helping students to realize that they aren't "bad" writers, and that they are capable of writing a "good" paper.

My favorite part of working with students in grades 4 - 12 is seeing them go from hating writing to learning that they can do it and even grow to love it. As a middle school teacher, I often had students who experienced difficulty in starting a paper. Once I taught them some strategies for writing an introduction or a lead, they were able to easily fill a page with quality writing. I love helping others learn to become better writers and readers.

I have a Bachelor's degree in English, so I have a great deal of experience in writing papers. I have always excelled in writing and I was even invited to join the National English Honor society (Sigma Tau Delta) in college. I was also selected as a peer tutor to volunteer in the Writing Center. I have taught English and Reading for several years, and as part of the curriculum, I focused on writing, grammar, and proofreading as well. I've also worked with students on these subjects while tutoring.

If you're a college student who needs help writing those final papers in order to pass a class, I'll be happy to help you. If you're in grades 4 - 12 and you need help with grammar, writing, pore your English class, please contact me. Thank you!

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.

College Counseling

I have a Master's degree in Counseling from the University of St. Thomas in Houston, TX. In addition, I am a certified Guidance Counselor.
