"My life has been filled with a love of books and reading. It was a pleasure to read to my own children and guide them as they began reading on their own. I spent eleven years managing the library at the Christian school my children attended. I enjoyed sharing great literature with each class and helping students find books that piqued their interest.

In recent years, I have had opportunities to do copywriting. In this capacity I have written product descriptions, website content, and rewritten content that has been translated from other languages to make it more readable in English. I have been gifted with excellent spelling and grammar skills. I have edited various works such as children’s books, High School and college papers, and Master’s level thesis papers.

I admire those who move to an English-speaking country to continue their education or to work. Because of the higher education opportunities in my area there are many who are looking to improve their use of the English language. With this in mind, I completed a 120-hour course, Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages, and a 50-hour course, Teaching Business English. I earned certificates for both of these courses from International TEFL and TESOL Training (ITTT).

It has been my pleasure to help college students understand and complete their assignments; help visitors to our country learn vocabulary for traveling; help businessmen with business vocabulary; prepare a student to attend American high school; and teach conversational English.

I have enjoyed building relationships with people in a wide-range of ages. Recently, I provided in-home care for the elderly, taught Sunday School to ages five through nine, and led a College Age Bible Study. A highlight of my year for more than 15 years has been taking a week each summer to counsel Senior High girls at a Church Camp.

My strengths are a firm and intuitive grasp of the English language and I relate well with people of all ages. I love to see the light turn on when a concept finally clicks" less...
