About Jody


Bio

Individuals have unique gifts and learn differently from one another, but EVERYONE can learn. Sometimes, when trying to improve performance or meet a goal, we need help. When it comes to writing, we all have stories to tell. I work with clients of all ages and varying backgrounds, and I also assist high school and college students with essays.

I work via phone, Zoom, and email (or other online meeting platforms). Message me to ask questions and/or coordinate instruction. Thank you!

As a certified teacher for the state of Tennessee and now successful writer and entrepreneur, I have creative yet practical ways to help students of all ages improve understanding and outcomes, whether the goals are to write books, essays, launch businesses, build subscriber lists, better communicate, document life stories, create marketing content, and more.

I earned a finance degree at The University of Tennessee but have been a writer all my life. I earned a master's degree in curriculum and instruction from Lincoln Memorial University. For Knox County and Maryville City schools, I taught 7th and 8th grade math and 9th grade business communication, writing, and computer applications. I'm an author, editor, proofreader, writing coach, and tutor. I own a boutique publishing company in Knoxville, Tennessee. While many of my clients are adults who are writing books, I love teaching and enjoy working with young people.

I was raised by an English teacher who preached the Harbrace Handbook daily. I excelled in all language arts courses in school. I apply brain-based teaching strategies and creative methods to help students master standards and build their confidence.

Due to scheduling demands from my children and my business, I prefer to work online. Thank you for learning about me. I look forward to learning about you!
