I'm currently a retired educator with 40+ years in the public and private school system. I have a MAT degree in Secondary Reading. Since I was chair of the English department, I am familiar with all aspects of the English curriculum as well as the common core. I have written and implemented curriculum for the English department in the public school setting in which I taught.

When I retired from public school, I continued my career as an educator at a private school. I have taught all levels of English from 7-12, although I prefer working with high school students. At the high school level, I have taught English 9, 10, American Literature, World Literature, Advanced Composition, Creative Writing, AP English Literature and AP English Language and Composition. One of the courses that I designed for the public school was that of a college writing course. In my after-school hours, I spent many hours assisting students who needed to develop and polish college essays.

Currently, I tutor students from my home where I have an office. It works well in that I make sure that there are no home distractions. In addition, I have the resources I might need at hand. Not only can I work with students on individual assignments, but I can build reading comprehension skills as well as give individual attention to students who need help in writing. If I am asked to travel, I would need to assess an additional fee as the time it takes to travel will take away from additional tutoring.

College Counseling

Through many of the courses that I have taught, I have spent multiple hours working with students in assisting them in their college choice. In my Advanced Composition course, I took students through all aspects of the college application process from selection to essays and thank you notes. From August to November, many students come to my door for assistance in the process. In addition, I have done volunteer service with the Boys and Girls club in Metro Detroit in college planning, essay writing and the scholarship application process.
