About Rebekah

A native of Chattanooga, Tennessee, I grew up filling my arms with books from the library and laying out under the trees in my yard to read them. My father's old typewriter would clack away with stories I dreamed up, driving my cat flying from the room to escape the noise. As I grew older, writing for school took precedence, but was fixed with equal concentration and care for the words.

Fast forward a few years and I found myself up into the wee hours writing countless papers for my Philosophy BA at Sewanee, clicking over occasionally to make edits on my freelance magazine articles. Jump forward a few more years and my deep appreciation for my language took me to China to teach English on the university level. Returned once more to the US, my passion for English and a well turned phrase remains untarnished.

Concerning my credentials, I have four years of experience in tutoring writing and another two years experience as a ESL teacher. Though I do not hold a state teaching license, I have earned my TEFL certification. I have worked with those as young as 7th grade, many teenagers, as well as adults. Writing is my specialty, both in tutoring and professionally, but I am able and willing to assist in other areas of the Language Arts and English as a Second Language.

My passion for words comes naturally to me. Allow me to help you find the beauty in the language as well.
