About Laurie

Dear Potential Student:

Do you struggle with writing? Do you wish that you could become more competent and confident on paper? The writing process incorporates a series of steps that can be learned and applied by any writer. From pre-writing to drafting, editing and revision,I have tips and techniques to share with my students, and I love to do so.

I earned a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from Vassar College, and a Masters of Education from Portland State University. I student taught and substituted in all grades K through 8 for three years before obtaining a job teaching English at the college level in 2003. I have spent the last ten years teaching all aspects of writing and composition to students with a variety of abilities and learning styles.

I especially enjoy working with students one-on-one. I get great pleasure from helping each individual discover his or her strengths and weaknesses as a writer, offering guidance and support to help them excel.

I would be very pleased to help you with any writing challenges that you have.
