About Ann

I hold a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, Cum Laude, Dean's List, Kappa Delta Pi Honorary Society,1976; and 12 master's credits in special education. I have been tutoring various subjects for many years, Grade 3 through college.
I now focus predominantly on reading and writing skills. Writing is critical to success. The way one writes exhibits their proficiency in their understanding of a subject or issue, conveys organized thought, deductive reasoning, and vocabulary prowess. It is essential that these skills be developed.

I have worked extensively with students in developing science projects. The science project incorporates a host of subject matter; reading, writing, research, math, marketing skills, etc. I have had great success in helping students to attain a finished product, and grade, they can be proud of. In addition, I have worked with several college students through the use of Skype, or the like, in an effort to meet assignment deadlines. The college curriculum can be very challenging, and time constraints can play a role in submitting a paper on time. The use of a computer session can often facilitate getting the desired finished product submitted by its due date.


I'm an excellent writer, but remember when that was not the case. I wasn't connecting the dots simply because no one was really telling me what I was doing wrong or failing to do. It was my English 101 professor who pulled it together for me. It was so simple. I focus on the student's level, and work from their own writing to develop vocabulary using a simple tool - dictionary.com. As the vocabulary evolves so does the sentence structure. I love literature, and have great discussions with students to pull thoughts and feelings from them. I then show them how to put these thoughts on paper, organize it, edit it, embellish it. I was a proofreader for 10 years, and the spell-check on the computer can leave much to be desired. Good editing is essential for solid written work.

I understand the stress and need for guidance when it seems you just aren't getting it or feel your work is not up to par.
Call me if you would like to talk. Let me know what you need and we will work from there to get you where you want to go.
