I am a tutor who cares about developing every student's potential My students' challenges instantly become my priority. I tailor every lesson to each individual child. I firmly believe that with careful teaching and coaching, every child can fall in love with words and achieve success.
I believe that if students are given time and caring consideration during their formative years, they will grow into very productive and successful adults. I love teaching language arts to elementary, middle school children, and anyone who wants to learn creative writing.

I am an ardent believer that we learn the best life lessons from children. I think that every human being has something extraordinary about them, a gift, a unique talent, or way of looking at the world only we can have. Imagination is the key to getting children to fall in love with words, writing, exploring the world and what makes them feel good.

My philosophy of life is that every person has an extraordinary gift or talent that sometimes goes undiscovered. My goal is to help each individual discover their inner-extraordinary and make it shine. I have written three children's books.

Public Speaking

Public Speaking

Speaking and Writing Coach. I have coached executives, television presenters and reporters on how to write speeches, make them engaging and message driven. Most importantly I believe that every individual has unrealized potential, and I work to instill self-confidence, and bring your personal style to your presentation. My goal is to help you deliver a convincing presentation without fear. In creating the presentation I teach you how to get to know your audience, develop your speech for them, use key phrases that connect to their specific demographic and tell your own stories that make the facts come to life.

Handwriting

I think really good handwriting is becoming a lost art. It is important for the brain to be able to let the words flow through your hands in a more tactile way than using a computer. Your thoughts come to you in a different way that when you can run through them at top speed on a computer. The comprehension of the subject and what you have just written uses a different part of the brain than the computer. Yes, computers are important, but letting words fall onto a page from your brain and through your hand do so in a different and more visceral way. Neat handwriting has always been of great importance to me. My handwriting is more than legible, it is attractive.

Writing,

Writing

I teach and coach you to: Think emotion and impact over form. Don't write "about" the issue, make me see and feel it through your writing. The structure of your writing is important in the way that it leads us through the information, makes salient points, and helps the reader or listener understand, accept, or reject our theory. Writing comes from the knowledge of knowing how to put words together and make them sing on the page.

Extraordinary Public Speaking Tutor

Connie is an extraordinary resource for public speaking techniques. She examines in detail the content, delivery, enunciation, body language...all elements for a successful presentation. I highly recommend her.

Ross, 1 lesson with Connie

Very Patient

Connie is a wonderful tutor. She is helping my son find his voice in his writing. I have seen great progress with his writing and confidence in his writing.

Stephanie, 11 lessons with Connie

Thorough and knowledgeable tutor

Connie was a dream come true. Her kind spirit and natural conversations helped my daughter feel at ease. Everything that I've noticed about my daughter, she saw it all. She worked with her on slowing things down and weaving in grammar too. I know with her patience and creativity my daughter will unlock her potential.
