About Lucy


Bio

I have been a family therapist most of my career but I have also taught psychology and communication classes and helped students discover the "joy of learning". Most recently, I have authored a children's book about a young boy who is learning the importance of monitoring what he thinks as he learns about the "law of attraction". It will be released to the public in early 2013.

Learning is about "discovering" and when children discover their importance and creativity, doorways in their minds open which help them become more confident and successful in all areas of their life.

Are you missing the "small" errors in your writing? Learning how to "proofread" is an art that requires patience, but the importance of finding these errors can make the difference between a passing grade or failure.

Elementary (K-6th)

I originally taught school when I first graduated with an undergraduate degree. Initially, I taught 3rd grade and then went on to teach both English and Science to 6th graders. After graduate school, I taught at a college level for several years. I feel I can relate to children of all ages and I love to see them grow academically as they grasp the finer details of learning.

Study Skills

How do you study? It's important to recognize the different styles of learning when you're looking at "study skills". Some people are auditory learners; some are visual learners and others might be tactile learners who need a "hands on" approach. Discovering the type of learner a person is will determine what method of learning will work best. Taping a lesson may be helpful for auditory learners; using flash cards and doing outlines works well for visual learners and being able to manipulate objects helps to crystallize learning for the "hands on" child. We will also look at routines, setting goals, understanding priorities and managing time as part of the total process. Having taught classes to both children and adults, it has been my experience that in order to succeed, you must first understand your learning style.
Vocabulary

Vocabulary skills are needed from Kindergarten through college, and using words correctly is essential in all areas where written skills are required. Learning to understand words and to use them properly can be fun and as a writer of children's books, the more creative and imaginative the words are, the more they capture the mind of the reader. Let's make vocabulary fun!

Writing is a wonderful way to share thoughts, beliefs, fears, passions, concerns, and a multitude of unique ideas with others. It is also a way a person can clarify their own thinking.
