Bio

Hi there! A little background on me: I received my BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts) degree from Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia, a city steeped in history and culture that I enjoyed to the fullest while I lived there. In addition to art courses, I studied history, sociology, literature, and creative writing.

Hi there! A little background on me: I received my BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts) degree from Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia, a city steeped in history and culture that I enjoyed to the fullest while I lived there. In addition to art courses, I studied history, sociology, literature, and creative writing.

My father was a professor of Journalism at West Virginia University, and my mother was also a teacher and an artist, having received her BS in Art Education from Moore. The apple, as they say, didn't fall far from the tree, and I am proud to follow in their footsteps as an educator, myself. Making a difference in a student's life is an utter delight for me!

In addition to my ten years at Guilford Technical Community College, where I have taught courses in history and vocabulary as well as art classes in drawing, portraiture, and color theory, I have experience teaching in large and small groups, and one-on-one, in subjects from grammar, spelling, and writing to drawing and painting, creative napkin folding, and self-defense. I even taught karate in college!

I have written online for a variety of clients and for several websites, as well as for three blogs of my own. Since I started writing web content in 2008, I have produced thousands of articles and blog posts, and I won a category in San Jose State University's Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest in 2011. I have edited manuscripts, articles, term papers and even a master's thesis, and I am confident that I will improve your skills in reading comprehension, vocabulary, grammar and spelling, and all kinds of writing, from creative fiction to term papers. And with 20 years' experience as a professional portrait artist and ten years as an art teacher, I can guarantee to improve your drawing skills, as well.

Please feel free to message me to set up a tutoring session, and I will dedicate myself to helping you achieve your educational goals!

Over a decade of teaching and tutoring has given me the experience and skills to translate my own appreciation for learning into the ability to use that same magic to open doors for others. I have personally read hundreds of books and have produced thousands of written works, from research papers and articles to blog posts, poetry, and fiction. You name it--I've either done it or studied it, and, as a firm believer in lifetime learning, I continue to soak up information all the time. My students benefit from my unflagging drive to help them excel and to enrich their lives, not only with the information they will need to succeed in the classroom, but with new learning and reasoning skills that will carry on to help them well beyond their time in school. I'd love to make lifetime learners out of everyone!

Helped make a plan and flexible.

On our first meeting, we were able to quickly determine how to approach improving my son's writing skills. Ali was very helpful in giving my son something to write about and in a subject for which he was interested. She wanted him to think about how to come up with a story and how to expand the story. She showed him how to develop characters and how they interact.

Very helpful

I'm not exactly sure what they went over, but I think she gave him some good studying and text reading tips. My son also said he's "going to try to take school more seriously from now on" so whatever she said - I love it!
