About Maureen

I am one of four children. My father helped my with my homework, and inspired me to be a writer. I edited my high school and college newspapers, and became a newspaper reporter.

Eventually I became a copy editor and then top editor at a 50,000-circulation daily newspaper, That career last 20 years.

Later, I became a nanny and helped children write and do arithmetic for 15 years. I have written my own vanity press books, and for the past three years have been a scorer for state assessment tests during peak season.

My favorite thing about helping kids is removing their fear of failing, and showing them that if they calm down, they have it in them to do what their teachers ask. I love when the light of learning turns on in their eyes.

Taught by nuns, I was drilled in grammar and proofreading, knowledge that was very helpful in my chosen career. Three years of Latin and two years of French gave me quick comprehension of word meanings.

I love to laugh and relax while studying and learning, so if you want a grandmotherly looking person with a young attitude, please call me for help.
