About Sandra

I specialize in helping students develop strong English language, grammar, and writing skills.

My preferred method is to start with an evaluation of the student's own writing; either a current assignment or a past graded assignment. Starting with a student's existing skills creates a foundation upon which to build and grow. I am available to assist students with individual writing assignments and general writing skills as well as preparation for the writing portions of standardized tests, such as the AP English tests or the GRE Analytical Writing test.

I am also available for professional writing training, including technical documentation and tools training in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.

I hold an MA in Technical Communication and a BA in English, with an emphasis in writing and a minor in Communications. I am a full-time technical writer, here in Boulder.
