About Coreen

Words are my passion and I’ve been writing, editing and proofreading in some form since I was a child.

I’ve worked in the technology industry as a Technical Writer, Publications Manager and Trainer for over 20 years, I previously volunteered with the adult literacy program Read OC and I currently act as a parent coach/mentor for my 4th grader son’s BOB (Battle of the Books) program.

As a mom of two elementary-aged children, I’m immersed in teaching and guiding my own children through their learning and growth. My goal is that everyone, young and old, find value in words and literacy.

Everyone learns in their own way and I believe it's important to understand that. In a classroom setting, there isn't always time for 1:1 learning but with a tutor and student, the approach can be tailored.

“Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn” ~ B. Franklin

If you require help in the subject areas of English, grammar, reading, writing, spelling, proofreading, editing, vocabulary, literature, please contact me.

My availability may be more flexible, so if you have a specific time in mind, message me to discuss. I'm also available online.

I look forward to hearing from you.

My editing/proofreading background includes working as a technical writer in the semiconductor industry, where I served as proofreader and copyeditor for numerous document types ranging from presale/marketing collateral to data sheets to white papers.
