About Belinda

I have been teaching Composition and Literature since 1986, when I began my graduate studies at the University of Miami, FL. I received my Ph.D. in English in 1997. I have taught all levels of writing and composition, and I am fluent in Spanish. I speak basic French. I am an expert proofreader, editor, and grammar teacher. I am at ease speaking in front of the classroom or tutoring on an individual basis, and I am comfortable with students of all ages: children, adolescents, college students, and adults.
Teaching and tutoring allow me to share all of my learning to others who will benefit from it, and I love dealing with language and the written word. I believe that our choice of words in both written and spoken language are as important and should be as precise as an artist's choice of color and texture for a work of art. Similarly, I think that seemingly pedantic concerns such as punctuation and grammar are in fact as important to a student and writer as the proper tool is for a surgeon.

In order to succeed in life, you have to speak and write in the manner that is correct and appropriate for every context, whether it is writing a research paper or book report, applying to college or law school, submitting a resume, proofreading the next great novel, or writing to your parents to ask for money.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Vocabulary

I have a Ph.D. in English Literature. I have also been teaching Composition, English, and Literature since I started graduate school in 1986. Currently, I am teaching/tutoring composition and writing to adults in a local university's Professional Adult degree program.
