About Dorothy

One of my passions in life is building confidence in people's writing skills. I believe that process is aided by a conversation about writing in general, word choice in particular, as well as how structure can guide the beginning, or the frustrated, writer toward clarity and the expression of their personal writing style in any genre.

Beyond the master's degree, I tutored writing and taught English composition classes at the University of New Mexico as well as for a community college in Colorado, where I also served as the Writing Success Center Coordinator and Student Support Services staff.

My writing background is varied and extensive including journalism, feature writing using creative non-fiction techniques, business writing, academic writing, and fiction. Because I once owned a boutique award-winning documentary production studio, I have also studied film and documentary theory, written documentary treatment plans for pre-production, engaged in script writing for video, as well as enjoyed screenwriting as a hobby.

What my skills list may not reflect are observances various supervisors, peers, acquaintances and friends have shared with me about my personality. Words like approachable, friendly, funny, wise, high-functioning, caring, and creative are just a few. Besides being passionate about leading students toward their goals; I also enjoy the exchange of ideas, the imparting of knowledge and a good laugh about the conundrum called life.

I want to help you build confidence in your writing skills and lead you toward a amiable relationship with the words and ideas in your head as you put them to pen and paper or keyboard and screen.

If you have any questions, or want to learn more about my tutoring style and philosophy, please contact me through Wyzant. If you're ready for assistance with a current project, let's get started!
