About Lorna

I am a career English teacher, with a Ph.D. in my field and 26 years of experience, in both England and in Maine. I love teaching and have been blessed with the opportunity to teach high school English, GED preparation in Adult Education, College Transitions (in English) courses in Adult Education, Adult literacy (teaching adults to read), and for the last 17 years, College Writing and literature at USM and UMF. Because I have worked with so many different kinds of students, in so many different contexts, I bring to my tutoring a strong sense of the individual needs a student brings to their learning and strive to be sensitive and individualized in my teaching. Teaching in the University of Maine system, working often with Freshmen, I am very aware of what students need to succeed in college and what they have often missed in high school. I am also aware of the challenges that many Mainers face trying to improve their basic reading and writing skills so they can go to college. Through my tutoring, I am available to help you learn to read from the very basics to getting ready for college level reading, to being more successful in your high school classes, to working on college level writing or to getting ready for college level writing. I can promise you a positive, challenging and rewarding educational experience. I am a career English teacher, with a Ph.D. in my field and 26 years of experience, in both England and in Maine.
