About Pamela

Hello,
My name is Pam. I am an Licensed Master Social Worker currently attending Capella University to become a Marriage and Family Therapist. Despite my career choices, my passion is writing. I have tutored adults and children in reading and writing. I was fortunate to learn solid writing skills, including grammar, at a young age. I would love to share my knowledge. Those skills are my best "friends" in work, school, and daily life.

I am married and have two three adult children and one grandson. Bob is also part of our family, our "rescue" dog of unknown breed, who has been with us for five years. I was a native Californian until seven years ago when we moved here. I still believe I live in Paradise! We love the community and plan to stay.

I am an outstanding English tutor because I have 15 years of experience working with a types of people, young and old. Patience is one of my best qualities. I know how to write, as evidenced by consistently high marks in school and well received articles I write for a church devotional. I have an unusually solid grasp of grammar and vocabulary. I tutored for the literacy program at a library in California, worked in elementary school classrooms, and have helped younger college students that were struggling with writing and reading skills. My success with them verifies my tutoring ability.

If you are challenged by reading, writing, or vocabulary, please contact me. I can provide details of availability when you call. I cannot wait to hear from you!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

English

I am avid reader and writer with three years' experience tutoring adults and children. I have a Master of Social Work degree with a 3.95 grade point average. Currently, I am enrolled at Capella University working toward a second Master's degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. After a year of classes, which involve extensive reading, research, and writing, I have a 4.0 grade point average.

Grammar

I was fortunate to to have a 6th grade teacher who taught me grammar in a way that has remained with me. When I was in college previously, I mentored several younger students who needed quick grammar lessons. Spell check and grammar check on a computer are limited by the input. A person must grasp grammar without depending on a computer. I can help!

Proofreading

I have always been able to spell, probably due to reading so much. I also am picky about my own writing and reread my writing several times for accuracy. People consistently ask me to read their work before submission so I can find their errors.

Reading

Reading is one of my favorite pastimes. I taught both of my children to read and volunteered in elementary school classrooms and as a literacy tutor. I helped many people move on in life by teaching them to read.

Vocabulary

From a young age, my love of reading has helped me build an excellent vocabulary. Reading is the best way to learn new words. I often help my husband and co-workers with finding the right word when writing. People come to me when they "need" a word and cannot think of one.
