Test Preparation:
ACT English

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.

ACT English

I have been a writer and copy editor for the last 29 years. That wealth of experience has helped me understand all aspects of the craft, both formal and practical. Additionally, I've enjoyed tutoring and mentoring students and other journalists in the language arts. I am patient with learners, and passionate about the beauty and importance of English.

Proofreading

I have been a working proofreader and copy editor for more than 15 years. My 29-year newspaper career also includes many years as a reporter, writer and mentor. I am adept at English composition and editing, love the work, and have often been praised as the go-to person for thorough, sharp-eyed, professional proofreading.

Writing

27 years at the Telegram & Gazette as a reporter, copy writer and editorial writer
1 year at the Worcester Business Journal as a copy editor and reporter
1 year (currently) at the Worcester Sun as a copy editor and editorial writer

I have wide and valuable experience as a journalist and memoirist, as well as a lifelong love of the written word. Other professional and budding writers I have worked with know me for my patience and excellence. As a mother of three, including one with special needs, I understand and appreciate the public school system. I easily passed the Wyzant writing tutor test and truly enjoy helping others.
