About Nancy

Are your English writing and grammar skills holding you back at work or school? I can help you learn to write more correctly, clearly, and effectively. Writing isn't easy but there are rules, guidelines, and techniques that can be learned and mastered with practice.

Why should you consider me as your personal English writing tutor and coach? I have years of experience as a writing teacher at the college level so I know what professors expect. In addition, I have made my living writing for businesses large and small so I know how to help you put your best foot forward in a work or professional setting.

Will you be comfortable and happy working with me? To find out, we'll begin with a 30 minute free get-acquainted consultation where we will discuss your learning goals and objectives for improving your writing and grammar skills. The next step will be a writing assessment to identify two specific areas for improvement that are likely to have the quickest and highest impact.

Once we agree to work together, I require a 24-hours notice if you need to cancel an appointment.

A little more about me. From seventh grade, where I learned to diagram sentences, I have loved English grammar and the power of words. My own education consists of a BA in English from UCLA and an MA in English and community college teaching credential from San Jose State University (SJSU), where I tutored in the writing center. I have taught writing and grammar at SJSU and several community colleges and loved it. In addition, I edit and write professionally in areas of technology.

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 have a BA and MA in English and a Community College Teaching Credential. I tutored in the Writing Center at San Jose State University (SJSU) for 2 years. For 5 years I taught English composition at SJSU and a number of community colleges. In addition to tutoring, I earn a living as a freelance writer.

Grammar

I have a Community College Teaching Credential for English. For 2 years I tutored English grammar in the Writing Center at San Jose State University. For 5 years I taught English composition courses to hundreds of students, which involved teaching grammar. To spark an interest in grammar, I invented a popular classroom team game that I called "Grammar Baseball."

Literature

I have BA and MA in English literature. In addition to being an avid reader of English literature, I have taught literature courses at the college level.

Writing

I have 7 years of experience tutoring and teaching writing and 30-plus years of experience "doing" as a writer and editor.

During our lessons she gave various tips for me to be able to make better essays. I can say I am 100% satisfied with the work that she did, she ...
