About Heather

As a veteran teacher of 27 years, I have worked with hundreds of young people to help them reach their greatest potential. I strive to build professional relationships with my students based on mutual respect and trust. By understanding my students strengths and weaknesses, I am able to help them improve their grades, and more importantly, their self-esteem.

Working one on one with a student, I work to demystify and simplify those things that frustrate the student, while encouraging growth in their areas of strength. The goal is to reach the student's potential and then go beyond to heights never dreamed of!

One of my favorite things about teaching English is helping become great writers! We work on sentence structure and grammar, but also work on discovering the student's individual writing style. I use the six traits of the Writing Process to help make writing, proofreading, editing, and publishing easier.

When teaching literature, my goal is for the student's to discover a love of reading! I work with them to understand the underlying meaning and nuances of the written word. I want my students to really get to know their characters motivations and desires and perhaps along the way to learn something about another time, place, or culture.

I look forward to helping you with your English and literature work. I prefer to meet in a student's home, but will consider other locations if necessary. Let's begin a new understanding of the English grammar, writing, and literature together!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

English

I have taught English for over 27 years. Writing is one of my specialties! Can't wait to help you be the best writer you can be!

Public Speaking

My undergraduate degree is in Interpersonal communications and I am certified in speech, drama, and debate for grades 7-12. Throughout my career, I have coached and judged Speech Meets, as well as, drama. Public speaking has always been a part of my teaching curriculum.
