About Lorena

Hi I'm Mrs. W,

Writing and words are important to all aspects of life. Having a strong vocabulary and the ability to write well can further not only your grades, but how you make your way through life.

After receiving a BA in English with a minor in Communications, I worked in the corporate world in sales, marketing and advertising. After raising my children, I became an author. I have five published books in the marketplace that are very highly reviewed. I own my own publishing business which has taught me hands on the business of social media, marketing, sales, public relations, and public speaking. I spent several years creating and facilitating day long conventions where not only was I a speaker, but brought like minded individuals together to share their knowledge.

I am an avid reader who enjoys many genres of books. I believe that through reading you can learn an extensive vocabulary and skills that help you not only in life, but as you pursue your aspirations. I am the mother of four children and four grandchildren. That means I have learned extensive patience, and also understand this generation. Having a tutor can allow you to expand your abilities as well as develop new talents that may improve your pathway through an ever-changing market. If you are looking for someone dedicated to help you grow in your English, grammar, spelling, reading and writing needs then I would be the tutor for you.

Your son is a great kid and I love to see him truly excelling at his reading. I was thrilled when he used the vocabulary words to do two paragraphs!

"Great!"

Great tutor for English

Lorena has been working with my son on English writing for the last few months. My son has a good vocabulary and likes to read but writing 2 sentences will take days. Lorena is very patient and knows how to approach defiant kids. Nowadays he is capable to write full pages with her in one session, which used to take 2-3 in the beginning.
