About Sally

My goal is to help you not just succeed but understand how you can use reading, writing, grammar and more to your advantage throughout your life. I love to help others find their 'aha' moments when reading, writing or working on any other area of English. Once you understand the 'why' behind what you're being asked to learn, you'll discover how communication can help you fly as you pursue your ultimate career!

I've been a professional freelance writer/editor since 1988, authored or contributed to 11 books, and my overall experience includes freelance work in numerous US and international publications includes all aspects of technical and lifestyle feature writing. Specifically, my experience includes: pitching feature story ideas; research; identifying and interviewing sources; fact-checking sources; documenting processes, developing and proofing instructions; translating “tech-speak” into clear, concise documents; and completing articles on or before deadline with little editing required.

I'm an outstanding tutor because I have a degree in English literature (I can help you with reading comprehension), I spent years learning English grammar (including endless diagramming of sentences) and I have extensive experience writing for business, technical and lifestyle audiences. We will work together to improve on your weaknesses plus find the strengths you didn't know you had. There are no stuffy lessons when I'm around!

If you're struggling with English topics of any kind, contact me and let's talk. I'd like to know more about your situation; I'm happy to share more details about how I can help you shine in a subject you probably never thought you could master. But you can - and I can help! Contact me now and let's get you rolling on your road to success!
