About Rachelann

My life experience has been varied. I was a writer and editor for 12 years, then went back to school and got a degree in horticulture. I love the writing process, but I also love the natural world.

I come from a family of almost all educators, and have written two books that are waiting for illustrations. I love learning and helping others "connect the dots."

My bachelor's degree is in horticulture and biology. I have worked in the field for 15 years because I love it. I have also done wildlife rehabilitation.

I was a professional writer and editor for more than 12 years in my first career. My mother was a high school English teacher, and I love the language. We also spoke French at home when I was growing up, and I know enough Spanish to be fairly dangerous! I have several freelance writing projects on my plate all the time.

I have only listed my very strongest subjects, but my interests are so varied! My biggest joy in life is seeing someone have a breakthrough in their understanding of the world and how it all fits together.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I have worked with individuals on the Autism spectrum for many years, and have aided in curriculum development for these students. I have been called upon to design sensory gardens for children at two retreat centers that are designed specifically for children with Autism.

Biology

Minor in biology at Sam Houston State University, and graduated Cum Laude.

Botany

I have a degree in horticulture with a minor in biology (really, it was 90 percent botany courses, but the minor is classified as simple biology). I have worked with plants for 15 years as a landscape specialist and designer. My coursework spans from entomology to soil science to plant physiology and taxonomy.

Ecology

I have always loved ecology and the related fields. The interdependence of all the organisms in a habitat is fascinating to me. As a landscape designer, I would spend hours discussing with my customers the ecosystems we were creating in their yards, whether terrestrial or aquatic. The ecological processes in freshwater habitats is probably my favorite specific ecological topic.

Photography

I was a hard news photographer for 12 years, but in the last 15 years I have translated the skills to capture the beauty of the natural world. I frequently sell prints of my photographs in my gallery.

Vocabulary

As a professional writer and editor, vocabulary is the basic tool for everything you do. Being able to write clearly and concisely depends entirely on knowing the precise word for any occasion. Any specialized writing, such as persuasive argument, sales, or simply applying for a job, requires a different subset of the language, and a successful individual must be able to utilize any and all of the language with all of it's nuances to simply navigate life.

Writing

I worked for 12 years as professional writer and editor, and have extensive experience with getting published. I have also authored several individual manuscripts, both fiction and non-fiction, ranging from devotionals for adults to educational books for children.
