Well, hello! How do you do? Me? I'm doing fine. Thanks for asking. I keep myself busy enough through freelance writing and tutoring. I don't know much about you, but I think we would get along famously. I enjoy writing of all kinds, whether that be blogging, ghostwriting, or even simple articles. With concerns to tutoring, my specialty is English and grammar, but if I'm being honest and you seem like the type to appreciate honesty, I prefer speech coaching. I've qualified to nationals in the NCFCA in both limited prep and platform speeches; I like to talk. It was lovely meeting you, and I hope to see you around here again soon.
I have a master's in education and a bachelor's in English. I have more than a decade of experience teaching English in foreign countries as well as in the United States. I also have online tutoring experience, assisting many students with writing essays and other English language tasks.
I have loved teaching writing and composition through the last 30 years, as an Artist in Residence and as an instructor at Jefferson Community and Technical College. I am a practicing writer, looking for students that will address their writing and reading assignments with independent thought. This approach may seem elitist, but in my experience, anyone can express herself or himself with writing, and the best place to start is where you are. Also, being able to read successfully means being able to relate to the text. This becomes the medium for writing. I have no limits to the abilities of students that I respect and work with, because the joy and growth are mutual. As errors come up, we can train your student to understand the basic principles that are needed for comprehension. For instance, there is a technical error in the last sentence I wrote in the first paragraph, which is accepted by most writers today--ending a clause with a preposition. This old adage adds a formality to writing that is often awkward to the contemporary reader: I could have said "There are no limits to the students with whom I will work," but there are limited situations where this is preferable. The human mind is quick and multifaceted; creativity is enhanced by paying attention to what writers actually think, on the way to making a choice or an evaluation. My job is to help the student slow down and recognize that brain 'traveling' through awareness is exciting and successful. I have taught in schools in nearby counties, and I would prefer to work close to home, but I would be willing to travel almost as much, but not every day. For anyone who lives outside my 'comfort zone,' I'd also be willing to work through the internet part of the time. For students who want to improve their reading and writing, there need to be free moments to explore and enjoy the work, but there are usually examples within their writing that can serve to instruct, without compromising their authenticity. Therefore, not every mistake will be brought to attention, but habits of self-editing are strengthened.
My love of helping students in reading comes from a lifelong struggle learning to read as a child. I have had the pleasure of helping students of all age groups in public schools and in a private setting. The students would work hard to improve their reading scores and to raise their grades and test scores for the other subjects they may be struggling in. I specialize in reading tutoring for students who want to succeed and to make their life better for their future. My goals for each session is to keep the students challenged but not overwhelmed. I assist the students with a step-by-step comprehension with vocabulary and spelling technique. This would help the student to work on hard words they may have hard time pronouncing or have difficult time comprehending what the students have read. I assign reading assignment after every lesson to check for progress of their reading. I hold myself to a high standard. For that reason, I often ask for a feedback, and I never bill for a lesson in which the student or parent of the student is not completely satisfied with my tutoring. I try to be flexible with time. While I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I offer make up classes. To ensure that the students have a quiet and comfortable study space in which to work with me, I am willing to travel to clients' home, library and/or another resort where I can teach the reading lessons.
I provide one-on-one reading/writing help for students ages 10 to adult. I am a former middle school language arts teacher; I am currently teaching expository writing at the higher-ed level. I can offer specific focus/help with writing organization and development of detail, reading comprehension and expression.
