I have been an elementary teacher for 13 years; an elementary principal for 3 years. Prior to that, I worked in training and development for Honeywell. The combination of both of these positions has given me opportunities I never would have dreamed I was capable of doing.
I was always a shy, introverted student. When I had to stand up in front of my high school class and give a speech, I froze, couldn't remember a word, and ran off the stage crying. I was class valedictorian. I remember walking up on stage and going to join the choir. I do not remember saying a single word. My parents assured me I did. (I think they just said that to make me feel good!) When I worked at Honeywell, my boss decided I would be the training person for our department, requiring me to stand in front of very high level employees and teach them. I was petrified. The first time I trained, I knocked over all the equipment! It got better as I took feedback and learned a style that worked for me. Public speaking doesn't have to be terrifying and I speak from personal experience.
I use all that I have learned from each teaching experience to develop the best learning processes I can. Training taught me that people learn best from being actively involved in the learning process, and the more fun...the more learning!

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.
I have been teaching English/grammar for over 30 years. I currently teach elementary school, but have also taught high school. I have taught a creative writing class at the college level. During my 15 years working for Honeywell, I helped many executives with company documents and wrote/typed many of their graduate-level papers.
I have taught elementary school for 13 years. I have tutored for 3. My specialty is writing and grammar.
I have been writing since high school. I won awards in high school for poetry, stories, and other papers. I wrote my own speech for high school graduation. I wrote detailed work instructions for a few years in the aerospace industry that passed government and ISO certifications. In addition, I often wrote and rewrote papers and correspondence for managers, etc.
As a teacher for over 10 years, I have been teaching elelementary, high school, and college writing. I enjoy teaching research writing, as well as creative writing.
