About KC

Reading and writing are about understanding and communicating . It is unfortunate that many of our young people struggle with it, but I do not believe it is their fault. I believe that the way it is taught sets many kids up for failure. I believe I can help you overcome these setbacks as a professional communicator myself.

Currently, I am a research consultant for US Department of Transportation Technical Assistance Grant and an interviewer on an oral history project for a museum archive. I have written creative content and publicity outreach for several local nonprofit campaigns. I know how to build and articulate a persuasive argument. In a single year, seven out of the eight grant applications I wrote won funding. I have written and produced a promotional video, social media content, and in-house nonprofit program materials. I think my gift is taking complex ideas and finding the humor and fun in them. I have written about six guest columns for the Savannah Morning News on issues affecting our environment, which required making the subject matter entertaining and amusing. But I am also thorough and detail driven, having been responsible for verifying the publications of professors applying for tenure at Vanderbilt University in Nashville.

Previously, as a development executive in the entertainment business, I was co-writer of of a television series on The Knowledge Network. I know how to craft concepts into a form that can be grasped by all ages. Twice I have been a winner of Canada’s national Harold Greenberg Award for screenwriting. I have worked with many other professional screenwriters, honing their storytelling into sharper focus.

And I am a mother myself. My daughter's language skills earned her an invitation to Vanderbilt's gifted children program where she formed enduring friendships with several professors. In recognition of her impressive mastery of English, I was asked to tutor the daughter of a Vice Chancellor at Vanderbilt in creative writing, which I very much enjoyed. I hope I get the opportunity to meet and work with your child/children. I believe if you can advance a child's skills enough, they will learn to love reading. If you love it, learning it becomes easy. And with a love of books you never need be lonely or bored again (well, almost never).

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.

SAT Writing

I have an abiding passion for the written word and have had professional success across a spectrum of formats: screenwriting, journalism, and grant writing. I love to transfer my knowledge and passion to others so that they may share in the joy of reading and writing. And, obviously, excel in their academic studies.
