I love teaching reading and writing and have enjoyed tremendous success in these areas. As a high school English teacher, I taught all language skills, literature and journalism and SAT Preparation for the language portion. I also mentor college and Master's level students in writing their papers. My doctoral dissertation focused on improving teaching reading and language skills to at risk first grade students. Naturally, the concepts embodied apply to helping all students, regardless of age, to improve their language skills. My interest in language has been central to my career.
I have written many analytic research papers including a Master’s thesis. My doctoral dissertation was awarded my university's top award. I have spent an entire career using language skills, and developing training materials for students, adult learners and teachers. I can work with you to articulate goals and assessment measures for you, or your student, as long as you have specific outcome objectives for your tutoring in mind. If your vision is clear to you and me, we can work together to develop a successful approach. To me, the most important benefit to the student is to be able to use language skills correctly to achieve a variety of purposes. That will be our goal: to assist you to select the correct language tools to get your job done, precisely! Most important, I could help you or your child to achieve a high degree of confidence in your writing and language skills.
I love language and pride myself in using it correctly. I have taught students of all ages to develop the skills that they need to be successful communicators. I can teach English reading, writing, grammar, creative writing, writing for a purpose, research writing, critical reading and help the learner to become a better editor and critic of his/her own writing style. I am trained and certified, with a career of practical language applications.
Do you have a particular English language challenge that needs to be addressed? Perhaps you lack confidence in your reading and writing, or you just want to "up your game," as it were. Give me a call so that we can discuss your needs and what I can offer to assist you to develop the confidence and skills you desire.

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.
I have a BA in English and taught high school English and language arts classes. I have also taught standardized test preparation classes. I am certified as a K-12 Teacher of English.
I am a K-12 certified teacher of English. My BA includes communications and journalism. I am a lifetime reader, writer and teacher. I enjoy teaching and helping people improve their skills. My doctoral studies involved improving the teaching of reading to first graders at risk of failing to learn to read.
In addition to my BA in English and my K-12 English Teacher certification, I have spent a lifetime perfecting my use of the language. I take a logical and practical approach to helping students to structure language so that it is grammatically correct.
In addition to teaching journalism and high school English classes, I have spent a lifetime applying written communications and helping others to improve theirs. Nothing goes to publication without first passing a critical proofreading test! I have effectively written for many different purposes and audiences.
I love to write! Writing and teaching writing skills are two personal passions of mine. I have written successful dissertations, technical documents, reports, fiction, poetry and numerous public relations and advocacy pieces. I am currently writing a book. Writing is an art that I love to share.
