About Phyllis

Having Trouble with English?

You are not alone! America’s diverse people and cultures, along with high-tech innovation and technology have all altered the English language.

Simply stated English has become more and more confusing, and funny. For instance,

We fill in a form by filling it out;
We have noses that run and feet that smell; and
We ship things by car, but send cargo by ship.

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics from the University of San Francisco and as a business professional I’ve spent more than 20 years making my living as a writer. Actually, I’m more like a storyteller, because no matter what I write it’s always wrapped around some sort of story. A story that is told so well that it cannot help but fascinate the reader and call them to action.

I have taught hundreds of people in corporate settings how to write effective stories about hundreds of topics.

My stories are written using the basic Standard English writing style taught in most schools. I like using this basic style for writing printed materials and direct mail or conversational pieces, and because it provides a solid structure of core rules for English as a second language. I also use many other complimentary writing styles based on subject matter, such as the Associated Press (AP) style for writing press releases and other business communications, the MLA (Modern Language Association) style commonly used to write research papers, and The New York Times Manual for the latest style updates, to name just a few.

Coaching and mentoring are part of my nature and a fundamental component of my teaching style. That's why during our first visit we'll explore your skill levels, thought processes and motivations to develop a list of short and long-term goals. This initial process will help you actively participate in the development of your own action plan and you can use it to guide you through your accomplishments long after our sessions are over.

As a coach, I won’t do the work for you. I will, however, help you to develop the skills you need to deeply understand the concepts you are learning so that you can apply them to new situations. And if you can learn how to solve a particular problem on your own, you can use those same methods to figure out similar situations.

Regardless of your age or ability, if you are looking for one-on-one English coaching, help with improving your language and writing skills, tutoring to improve your computer skills or any other approved subject, I can help you develop the learning skills you need. And if you are looking for help to prepare for a test, to write a paper, to learn English as a second language, or if you have another project - and you want to have fun doing it – give me a call.

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.

Business

The foundation of my business qualifications is built upon a marketing career in corporate America that spans more than 20 years. My passion for teaching and mentoring was born as I learned to train my staff on how to write formal, informal and conversational content to meet specific contract requirements. And, when my nieces and nephews reached middle school I was in tutoring heaven. Today, my passion lies in helping people learn English in a fun and practical way that supports deep understanding.

Microsoft Outlook

I've used Microsoft Outlook for many years to manage my work and personal email. But did you know that you can use Outlook for more than just managing email? It's true! In addition to email, I can help you learn to use Outlook's special features, like managing contacts to organize and keep track of people you know, using the calendar to manage meetings and schedules, and controlling junk mail.
