About Martha

I am new to tutoring and hope to spread my love for the written word to any and all who are willing to learn. I was exposed to and began reading books at a very young age because my father worked for a major publishing company, and was always bringing home books for all of us to read. Reading has been a lifelong passion of mine. My goal is to make it yours, too!

I have been in the publishing business for the past 30 years, and love everything involved with this field. For the past eight years I have been a proofreader. The focus of the projects assigned to me has been mainly financial, but also there has been the occasional medical-related or test-preparation book, and once in a while a cookbook. I am passionate about being sure that whatever enters my hands leaves as a clean copy. Grammar, punctuation, sentence structure--the keys to what makes a good book even better and, most important, readable. Three cheers for reading!

English has been my best subject in elementary, high school, and college. My years in the publishing business, especially the past eight spent proofreading, have seasoned me with just the right touch of knowledge and passion about everything to do with books and reading.

I would love nothing more than to instill a love for reading in everyone who wishes to delve further into what makes a book the best thing that can enter your life, and stay with you always. I am ready to teach you, so please feel free to contact me with any questions.
