I have taught as a classroom and substitute teacher for 9 years in Richmond, Chesterfield County and the Tri-Cities area. I am knowledgeable, patient and encouraging especially related to SAT and SOL Test preparation.

I enjoy working with motivated students willing to improve their skills. I also enjoy helping students build their confidence while improving their test scores on practice exams. I am skilled at helping students improve their study and research skills. I prompt students to proofread their work carefully to help them with their grammar and spelling skills and increase their reading and written vocabulary. All this support will help students master all of their academic challenges.

Grammar

I will help you learn the rules of grammar easily. By proofreading your own work you will become the best editor and learn to identify your strengths and challenges. You will develop confidence and improve your writing skills because I will help you write about what you know and enjoy. I have interactive on-line resources that we can practice in session with games and puzzles. Grammar games are more effective than memorizing boring rules.
Proofreading,

Proofreading

Proofreading is a great skill. I help students discover their strengths and challenges related to their writing. By being able to read and edit their own work, students will gain confidence with their written language skills. Proofreading will also review and reinforce the rules and construction of written language. I prompt students to organize the content of their compositions and help them develop their voice, point of view and opinions in their written work. I help students navigate the rules of written language with patience and creativity.
