About N. Ann

Greetings. I LOVE helping young people and adult students to achieve their academic goals, as well as working with professionals to enhance their Business English and writing skills. I am experienced as a tutor and writing coach and have worked with all age ranges to assist in developing writing skills, improve reading comprehension, help to develop story ideas, and assist in proofreading and editing writing assignments.

I have a journalism degree from Michigan State University and have worked primarily in corporate environments developing communications plans, writing and editing print and online copy, and helping to market initiatives and programs. I also have a masters degree in General Administration from Central Michigan University with a focus on organizational communication skills. I am a doctoral student currently on leave but have been recognized as a prolific writer and good researcher. More recently, I have assisted several authors in developing their manuscripts and final book projects into published work.

My tutoring style for writing assistance is to first help the student to clarify what they want to communicate. If a student goes into a project not really knowing what they want to communicate, that creates fear. So that's my starting point. If a student has a writing assignment that has already been completed but does not feel confident in their writing abilities, I will work with the student to strengthen the assignment by assessing and making recommendations for clear and well written statements, effective transitional statements, and will review for grammar and spelling accuracy. In this case, I would review the assignment requirements, read the assignment, then make suggestions and work with the student to make changes to ensure the integrity of the assignment and the student's work.

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.

English

I love the English language and using words to construct meaningful context. I studied Journalism in school and took classes in the origin of words. I am qualified to tutor English because I have a mastery of the subject which I use daily as a freelance writer and blogger.

Grammar

As a communications professional and freelance writer, it is required to have good grammar to be successful. I am qualified to teach grammar because of my understanding of language and sentence structure and composition. I studied journalism in undergraduate and have been very successful in my writing studies and assignments through graduate school.

Proofreading

I am an experienced Communications professional with over 20 years of experience. I have a degree in journalism and master's in general business. I have strong editing, proofreading and spelling skills with an eye for detail. I have worked as a writing coach for several university students and tutored middle and high school students in reading and writing.

I enjoy reading and have a good grasp of subject comprehension and inference. As a journalism student, writer and communications professional, it is required to master structuring thoughts and sentences into cohesive language.

SAT Reading

I am knowledgeable of the SAT reading requirements and have a good grasp of vocabulary and language, and the use of words. I am able to help students to develop study skills to prepare for taking the test and mastering new vocabulary. I previously studied etymology and have facilitated SAT reading classes.

SAT Writing

I am a skilled and gifted writer. I am knowledgeable of the SAT rubric and what is expected in the essay submission. I am able to help students to develop their thoughts and put them in writing on paper.

Vocabulary

I have a strong understanding of words and associations. I am familiar with study of word origin (etymology) through a college course.

Writing

I am an experienced Communications professional with strong writing skills. I have a journalism degree and am currently working as a freelance writer and blogger. I have experience working with middle and high school students through a youth development nonprofit I created, and am often asked for writing assistance and critical analysis on college-level assignments before they are submitted. I believe that every student can be successful with the appropriate tools, self-desire and an empathetic, caring teacher/coach.
