About Destiny

I've been tutoring people, of all ages, in the subject of English most of my life. As a grade school and high school student I excelled in the subject, and often helped my peers improve their spelling and grammar skills. As a college student, I tutored my peers who needed help proofreading their papers and meeting criteria in their prospective classes. As an adult, I've tutored children and adults alike. I graduated high school with honors, and I never received anything lower than an A in any English class I was ever enrolled in. This includes college courses. Anytime I've been between jobs, I've babysat for local families after school. The kids I watched all improved their grades once I started working for their families. The adults I've tutored are mostly going back to school to earn their degrees and they're rusty with grammar and structure. I come in and I help them realize their own abilities. Before they know it, they're back in the swing of things. I'm also a writer. I belong to a writer's group, of which I'm the secretary. I have published short stories, and I always have many irons in the fire when it comes to writing. Grammar and the English language are my passions. I write every day; therefore my skills stay sharp. I can help you better understand the confusing rules of idioms, metaphors, similes, punctuation, sentence structure and more.
