"Hi, I'm Roxanne, a professional writer, editor and English/reading/writing/test prep tutor. I have taught English at the high school level (9th, 10th, and 11th grades) but actually prefer tutoring one-on-one. I love working with young people and empathize with how difficult it must be for some to make the best grades possible in today's overcrowded classrooms.

"Hi, I'm Roxanne, a professional writer, editor and English/reading/writing/test prep tutor. I have taught English at the high school level (9th, 10th, and 11th grades) but actually prefer tutoring one-on-one. I love working with young people and empathize with how difficult it must be for some to make the best grades possible in today's overcrowded classrooms. Although I'm a professional writer, I continue to tutor because it's so fulfilling to see a student gain confidence, improve his or her English and writing skills, master course work, and get better grades.

I also have three years of experience as an SAT and ACT tutor for Kaplan and Score! Prep; I've tutored students of all ages as a volunteer with 826LA for 9 years. (At 826LA, I specialized in working with college-bound high school students, helping them write their essays for college applications.) However, I work with students of all ages, from age 5 through adult. At Sylvan Learning Center, I also work with children who have been diagnosed with ADHD.

I hold an MFA in Screenwriting from UCLA (2013). I'm certified to teach English and speech and graduated from Harding University with a BA in English Lit (summa cum laude). I passed the CBEST test in 2005 and have substitute taught in the Santa Clarita school system. My middle-grade book "Caterpillarland" is available on multiple online platforms; its theme is having the courage and confidence to be the best you can be, even when it seems "impossible."

I truly enjoy working with young people and helping them achieve their goals. Strong reading and writing skills will sustain them throughout their lives in any career, long after they've finished their formal educations. I look forward to hearing from you!" less...
