About Cindy


Bio

You know how some words get your blood going? Like, if you're into ballet, then when you see words like "ballerina" or "dance" or "toe shoes," you sit up and take notice. That's how I am with "writing."

I love creating sentences, choosing just the right words. I actually love the grammatical way sentences work. I have an eye for spelling. It's a gift, really. I bombed in gym class, but, boy, I could kill in spelling bees!

For the past 15 years I've written a humor/observational column...

You know how some words get your blood going? Like, if you're into ballet, then when you see words like "ballerina" or "dance" or "toe shoes," you sit up and take notice. That's how I am with "writing."

I love creating sentences, choosing just the right words. I actually love the grammatical way sentences work. I have an eye for spelling. It's a gift, really. I bombed in gym class, but, boy, I could kill in spelling bees!

For the past 15 years I've written a humor/observational column for our local newspaper, as well as hundreds of feature stories for the paper and various magazines. I also belong to a writers' critique group, where I've learned to give and receive editing and content advice -- an invaluable experience, being on both sides of the critique. I taught two classes at a writers' workshop in Lewisburg, and I've won two 1st Place awards for my humor column. I love to help people create clear, strong communications, and I look forward to tutoring.

English calls to me: I love crafting beautiful sentences and building them into essays and stories. And I love helping people "get" English grammar, punctuation, and writing.

Don't let the PUGS (Punctuation, Usage, Grammar, Spelling) scare you. Don't be daunted by having to write an essay. I'm happy to help!

Reading

It's hard for me to imagine a life without reading, whether for pleasure or education. With my English degree I have been fortunate enough to be sought out by fellow students to help them understand the sometimes complicated nuances in their reading assignments. I enjoy studying a work, paragraph by paragraph, to fully comprehend the author's meaning.
