About Tammy

Thank you for checking out my profile!

I have a degree in journalism from Indiana University and after college worked as a marketing copywriter. I have always wanted to write books, and I recently finished my second one, which is a memoir. I am a community blogger for the Huffington Post, and now offer classes on how to write an effective blog. I've also taught creative writing to junior high students.

I really enjoy working one-on-one with people to help them express themselves and find their most genuine voice. I can help with all aspects of the creative process, as well as with grammar and editing. My approach is positive and validating, and focuses on learning to relax into writing. I encourage students to develop a "bag of tricks" to deal with the many forms of resistance they may face when writing or being creative.

I am flexible in my availability, offering both weekday and Saturday appointment times.

I would love to hear from you and learn how I can help you not only reach your goals, but find enjoyment in the process!

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.

Reading

As a writer and author, I like to help readers think about why the author may have made certain choices, and what he or she is trying to convey. I focus on comprehension and have fun uncovering the subtleties in language.
