About Edie

Writing is not just my job, it is my passion. As a professional journalist, I have a special feel for what needs to be said and how to say it.I have won several awards for my work on local, state, national and international levels.

They include eight "Emmy" awards, the "Cardinal's Communication Award" from Joseph Cardinal Bernardin, a William Benton Fellowship from the University of Chicago (awarded on an annual basis to 12 journalists worldwide) a National Association of Black Journalists 'Salute to Excellence Award,' two 'Gold Bell' awards from the Mental Health Association in Illinois, 'The Centennial Medal' from the Chicago Lighthouse For The Blind and Visually Impaired (other recipients include former Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley) a "JWOD Media Award" for coverage of disability issues, a "William Randolph Hearst Award," a "Silver Dome" Award from the Illinois Broadcasters' Association and I was a finalist for the "Peter Lisagor Award for Exemplary Journalism."

My specialty areas include health and medical, personality profiles, education, community affairs, veterans'issues and family concerns as well as applications for college,internships and fellowships.

I have also taught writing on the college level, and I'm an experienced writing tutor.

Regardless of who you are or what you do, writing is a vital and wonderful skill.
I believe learning to write can be fun, fascinating and never boring. I want my students to love writing as much as I do!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Writing

As a professional, award-winning journalist, I have a special and current understanding of what needs to be said and how to say it.
Among my awards are more than two dozen local, national and international honors. They include eight Emmy Awards and a fellowship from the University of Chicago. I am extremely competent in various types of writing to fill every need.
I also love to write, brainstorm and help people reach their potential. I also have taught writing at the college level and have prior tutoring experience.
