About Holly

With a B.A. in English and Writing, I have worked in many different areas from proofreading and editing to writing and publishing. I homeschooled my children from kindergarten to college which gave me experience in teaching all levels from elementary through high school. I have worked with college students and grade school children in ministry for the past 25 years and am familiar with all learning levels as well as any cultural background.

For high school or college students, I can help you by proofreading your writing and suggesting ways to make it better or we can work together from the beginning to put your paper together. For parents of children, I can help your child love the subject of Language Arts by "lighting a fire, instead of just filling a bucket." For homeschooling families, I'm willing to help you develop a fun to use curriculum!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)
