Hi everyone! I will be thrilled to help you or your child. I have undergraduate degrees in English, biology, and advertising, and am a candidate for a master's degree in environmental studies. I tutor middle school, high school, college, and graduate students. I homeschool students from online schools, including Laurel Springs.

I review, proofread, and provide feedback on writing essays, business and science papers, theses, and dissertations. I am a PowerPoint specialist and can help create the text and the visuals in PowerPoint. One interesting fact about me is that I was in the Navy and steered a ship in the Pacific Ocean!

I love to help students learn and gain confidence. I will show you how to write well, navigate a novel, grab control of your grammar, spiff up your spelling, or make sense of science -- both biological and environmental. I will help you organize your assignments and assist you with your work.

I have two teaching credentials in English and biology and have tutored for more than 15 years. I was the Writing Center Coordinator and an English composition specialist at my local IB high school. I helped students write research papers. I graduated cum laude in English. I am also a published journalist and have worked as a writer. I come from a family of English and science teachers!

I have also taught biology and environmental science in public school. I graduated summa cum laude in biology. Since taking early retirement to raise my daughter, I tutor from home online. I love seeing my students succeed

I cannot wait to improve your or your child's abilities, as I love to share my knowledge with students. A passion of mine is climate change. I am combining my biology and writing backgrounds by completing a master's degree in environmental studies to follow my heart in science communications. In the long run, I will continue tutoring as I find it equally fulfilling.
