Mrs. G's Writing and Reading Tutoring
About this pro
Students tell me I'm easy to talk to because I listen to them, then help them see how to improve their writing. As a published author, I've learned how the rewriting process can really improve any piece of writing. As a sub my days are always different. I enjoy interacting with teenagers. They consistently agree I'm their favorite sub because I treat them with respect and encourage all of them to do their best work.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I'm a voracious reader, choosing many non-fiction books in subjects I'm interested in pursuing. Cultural Anthropology and Psychology have been my most recent choices. As a writer, I'm always having my work edited by my publishers, keeping me abreast of new grammatical standards.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I've always taught, starting with fellow students when I was in second grade and the teacher used me as her "helper" because I was always done with my work earlier than others. I enjoy helping people to learn.
- What types of customers have you worked with?I've only done informal tutoring to date, helping students when I'm subbing in their classes, or helping them to improve the writing of their college entrance essays when they send them to me on-line.
