About L D

I have a Bachelor's and Master's degree in English. More than thirty years of educating young people qualifies as a notable work history. Beginning with middle school in Natchez, continuing with high school English from ninth to twelfth grades and including high school Spanish, I have had the privilege of working with a wide range of students.

After teaching students English and Spanish, I have also been privileged to help students from kindergarten to college with tutorials. I recently established and maintained a tutorial service, which assisted students from kindergarten through college in any subject. My services afforded tutorials for students needing help in speech, English, science, Spanish and math.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

English

I have a Bachelor's and Master's degree in English. For nineteen years of my career, I have taught students English. I continue tutoring students in English today.

Grammar

After receiving a bachelor's degree in English, I taught students from seventh grade to college level English grammar. For three years, I was president of the MS Council of Teachers of English and I also edited the English journal for more than twelve years.

Literature

After studying American and British literature, I spent nineteen years teaching students. I worked in classes about authors of contemporary literature, Southern writers of literature and women's literature, as well.

Public Speaking

Not only do the classes in Oral Communication allow knowledge about speaking to groups, but also I have had more than thirty years of communicating before groups of people. I tutored teachers in public speaking for re-certification purposes, and I have had innumerable successful speaking engagements. This past year, I taught two classes of public speaking to high school students. One student from this class won second place in a district-wide public speaking class.

Reading

During my undergraduate experience, I studied in several reading classes, learning techniques for teaching students reading.

Spanish

I have an endorsement licensure through the state of Mississippi to teach students Spanish. I have traveled to and spent summers in Costa Rica and Mexico - living with native speakers and studying at the university level while in these countries.

Spelling

Easily an integral part of the curriculum of English, accuracy and knowledge in spelling is a given in writing and speech. The training received ensures that there is a wealth of knowledge related to spelling.

Study Skills

Thirty years of classroom instruction and the daily before-and-after school tutorial sessions are indicators of my ability to teach study skills. I have coached and assisted students in preparing for subject area tests; in improving overall averages in a variety of subjects, as well as assisted them in preparing to enter college. Students who want to read better, comprehend better, and write better have been able to gain much insight from our tutorial sessions. Success has been the expectation and each exchange has met with the level of success expected by both the tutor and the tutored, alike.

Vocabulary

Words are a major portion in the study of English... continued experiences in the teaching of English, editing journals and teaching students writing requires the knowledge of words.
