About Betty

I have been a writer and fashion editor for more than 25 years. My work has appeared in many publications. I currently write for two local papers.

In addition, as a homeschool mother, I taught writing classes for nearly a decade in Las Vegas, NV. The public schools utilized me as an adjunct teacher to provide writing emphasis for fifth graders. My year-long classes teach the basics of writing while concentrating on writing for college as well as creative writing. I have worked with students who are academically talented, and those who have learning disabilities. I have never had a student who worked at their assignments fail to pass the Nevada Proficiency Exam or score well on the SAT.

I utilize journals and constant writing to improve the students' work, and I offer encouragement for effort spent. I have a complete curriculum plan for two years of classes. My classes have been accepted by Alpha Omega for credit within their program.

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.

I have been a youth pastor for more than 15 years, as well as the leader for a large homeschool cooperative that was Christian. I taught Bible studies, Christian Lifeskills classes, and I have spoken before Promisekeepers.

I have been teaching writing to students preparing for the SAT and Nevada Proficiency Exams for more than ten years. My students generally do well, and I have seen them raise their SAT scores substantially when I have ample time to prepare the student.
