Bio

My willingness to tutor comes from 17 years of teaching Art, English, Writing, and Grammar. I am an experienced editor, and can prepare students for MCAS, after working at Ludlow High School in their computer programs for students needing vocabulary and English instruction. My graduate degree from MASSArt has to do with curriculum and education. I am a published poet and have won an Edgar Allen Poe Award at the U. of Va.

My willingness to tutor comes from 17 years of teaching Art, English, Writing, and Grammar. I am an experienced editor, and can prepare students for MCAS, after working at Ludlow High School in their computer programs for students needing vocabulary and English instruction. My graduate degree from MASSArt has to do with curriculum and education. I am a published poet and have won an Edgar Allen Poe Award at the U. of Va. Over twenty years of facilitating writing group exercises allow me to work with students of any age. Private lessons available. I will work very hard to get each student up to the level of readiness that is necessary. I have sold my artwork professionally for over twenty five years. Additionally, I have portfolio experience with students of high school or college level.

I have used a computer lab for tutoring high school students preparing for the MCAS. The program was specifically for building/recognizing vocabulary. Basically, it was a drill procedure. If I am not using a computer, I would use drill and repetition, working with each student whose needs are going to be individual needs. Testing is given to assess the student's progress. If a student needs help with writing, prompts are given to stimulate a creative personal work on the part of the student. These are a few techniques. Each student's needs must be assessed differently as to grade level.

Literature was covered in both my degree requirements. I have a love for reading which I would pass on to my students. Both classic and modern writers are appealing to me for personal reading. Poetry is the genre in which I write, one that is directly related to my painting in its abstraction.
