I have real life experience with editing, grammar, literature, and English Language Arts. I have worked for publishers and authors and have published both fiction and non-fiction. In addition, I've tutored English as second language to a medical doctorate student and also to a woman from Yemen. My research on the Nation's Report Card in the area of writing was published in Journal of Literacy Innovation.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a NY State certified elementary school teacher. I've taught grades K-12 and over however in various subjects.
Phonics,

Phonics

From working with students learning to read, I've found phonics is necessary. Once they learn the basics, phonics allow them to figure words out without the aide of someone else. Phonics enable students to decode. I've worked in the remedial reading room at a public school where phonics greatly helped students. As a teacher, I've used phonics in my classrooms too.

Study Skills

Study skills make all the difference in how well one does in a subject. A teacher and/or tutor is useless without a student studying on their own. They have to want to do well. Often, going over the material, researching and practicing is necessary. This is why homework is often given.

Literature,

Literature

Literature is my ultimate area, my major in college. My way of teaching this subject, as with all subjects is to make learning as fun as possible. Because I'm a big believer in multiple intelligences, I like to first find a person's personal best way to learn, then approach the subject methodically. My personality is sunny, optimistic, and gentle, although I can be strict if a student isn't trying. In addition to college, I've published and currently work for a few publishers. Along with teaching, writing, grammar, and literature are my passions.
