Bio

Struggling in school is a draining and demoralizing experience for the whole family. The problem is usually not one of ability at all, but of the child being intimidated by (and therefore avoiding) written assignments.

Struggling in school is a draining and demoralizing experience for the whole family. The problem is usually not one of ability at all, but of the child being intimidated by (and therefore avoiding) written assignments. The most valuable skills I offer as a tutor are warmth, sensitivity, and a relaxed, friendly style that will help your child to overcome anxiety and end the cycle of discouragement and failure. I will help your child by approaching him or her with respect, listening, and curiosity for his or her unique personality and interests. Writing assignments will cease to be dreaded chores and will become what they are meant to be: ideas and thoughts clearly expressed on paper that will give your child a powerful new sense of accomplishment.
My own background includes every type of writing, from published expository writing and fiction in college to a professional career that includes international speechwriting, copywriting, and marketing. Most recently I have been a substitute teacher, where I worked with children in grades K-12. This experience affirmed for me how much even the youngest children observe and know--they only need to developing the skills that allow them to transform those thoughts and ideas into well-written language. Tutoring provides the opportunity for me to do what I enjoy the most: work one-on-one with individual students to help them become more effective writers, and to produce results that build confidence in their abilities. I hope to meet your child soon so that we can start this important and rewarding process together.
