Utah State University/weber state (Communications)
I have a degree in Communications with an emphasis in public speaking; I also have a degree in English and secondary education. I have had many years as a substitute teacher, mostly teaching in English classes on a junior high level. Recently, I have helped friends who are hoping to be published authors in proof-reading and editing their fictional books. I like to keep up to date with grammar books and the Associated Press Stylebook. I did some newspaper reporting and editing for a few years. And I have experience proof-reading and editing professional and college papers. I have also been a volunteer in an elementary school with reading and writing.
I feel like my experience is pretty widespread with a good variety of different subjects; and my love of grammar, correct word usage and sentence structure pushes me to keep learning and to perfect my knowledge in those areas.
I would love to help those who are struggling to be able to feel confidence in writing and reading and oral presentations. I am knowledgeable and patient and love to see others catch the spirit and light of learning. I feel like I can give the time and experience necessary to help you succeed.

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.
