Writing well will be an integral part of any future plans you have. Whether you are headed to college, a trade school, or into the work force, the ability to write clearly and concisely is paramount.
I am interested in tutoring to help you improve your writing, grammar, and proofreading skills. I have spent much of my 20+ year career teaching writing, grammar, and helping students improve their proofreading; which has been the highlight of my career. My satisfaction comes from watching students grow and learn as writers. When students can see improvement, I have done my job and done it well. The joy of tutoring comes from providing the one-on-one interaction with a student that can really transform his/her ability to write, proofread, and apply grammar skills to writing.
Most people hate grammar - I completely embrace the nerd in me that loves it. If you are more of a math person, I can use that ability to help you be much better with your grammar skills. Grammar is one of the building blocks of strong writing. Like anything else you want to be good at, it requires practice, and I will help you do just that!
Grammar and proofreading are a natural extension of any writing class and having one without the other two is nearly impossible. Therefore, as we work on writing, the others will be a natural part of that. If our focus is grammar, writing and proofreading will be a significant part of the process, as they are some of the best ways to practice the proper use of various grammar rules.
Teaching is one of the best life decisions I ever made. My success comes from seeing you be successful and watching you witness your own improvement. Please, contact me to learn more, ask questions, and schedule a lesson. I am excited to get started! Writing well will be an integral part of any future plans you have. Whether you are headed to college, a trade school, or into the work force, the ability to write clearly and concisely is paramount.

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.
My first years of teaching were spent teaching in California in and ESL classroom. In addition, I have had foreign exchange students from all over the world throughout my career. With that, I have often had to find creative ways to help those students learn to speak English, write English proficiently, and understand it in the classroom.
