Texas State University (English)
Texas A&M (Master's)
I have been tutoring since I was in high school when my government teacher asked me to tutor a football player so that he could graduate and take advantage of the college scholarship awarded to him. I went to Texas State and got a teaching degree in English and I have spent the last 30 years of my life teaching. I have a bachelor's degree in English education from Texas State, a Master's degree in Education from Texas A& M, and additional graduate hours in English that certify me as a college English professor. After graduating from Texas State, I taught kindergarten for 10 years and then my family moved to Tomball, TX, and I began teaching junior high school English. When I retired after 30 years in the classroom, I was teaching high school dual credit English to juniors and seniors. I have also been on staff at Lone Star College for the last 15 years and remain on staff there at this time. My strength as a teacher is college level writing - essays, research papers, college admission essays, and SAT writing. I am a college writing professor, so I am well versed in every area of academic writing. I love working with students who are motivated to do their best, and I have enjoyed many wonderful and rewarding relationships with my students over the years. I have been nominated for teacher of the year 18 times and have won the award several years. I continue to enjoy relationships with past students who have enjoyed working with me.
I hate to limit my expertise to writing because I teach literature also and love it. I can be very helpful in guiding students to a clearer understanding of their reading assignments, not only in English classes, but others as well. Much of it has to with strategies while reading, and I have many of those to offer struggling students.
I have been retired for two years now and find that I miss teaching and look forward to helping struggling students in the future on my own.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
I am an English Composition and Rhetoric professor at a college.
