I taught English at a university for 12 years. Mostly I taught freshman writing classes that involved writing arguments and analytical essays. I can help you improve your ability to develop thesis statements, topic sentences and supporting ideas. I taught grammar as part of my classes, so I am also comfortable helping you acquire grammar concepts and to learn to more effectively proofread. I also taught literature classes and can help with analyzing.

Much of the skill building that took place happened as a result of those tutoring sessions. I enjoy seeing students' faces light up when they "get" a concept. It is a rewarding experience for the student and for me.
I have over 10 years of experience working closely with students to improve their writing abilities, including coming up with an idea, developing it, writing the paper, editing, and proofreading.
