"Hi, I'm Rhonda. I was a business major for a long time in college. Then a friend told me, "Rhonda, all you talk about is all the life-altering books you've read. You're an English major." The next day, I went to IUS and signed up for two literature classes and the rest is history.

"Hi, I'm Rhonda. I was a business major for a long time in college. Then a friend told me, "Rhonda, all you talk about is all the life-altering books you've read. You're an English major." The next day, I went to IUS and signed up for two literature classes and the rest is history. I went on to teach at that school as a professor and win the Distinguished Teaching Award in one semester -- beating out people that had been there for years. How? I so motivated my students, not to mention the most important thing -- giving them confidence in themselves and unraveling this myth for them that writers are born, not made through a lifetime of hard work. I believe those first moments writing are hard-- that blinking cursor is so easy to walk away from with all the distractions we have today. So I invent prompts they cannot wait to write about--things that appeal to their age . . . their world.

I've been an English prof for 22 years. Now. I've been freelance as a health writer who greatly misses helping people with reading and writing. I have taught ESL also and know how to help specific nationalities overcome their difficulties with English and English sentences.

I'd also be a great ACT or SAT reading tutor because I've actually written books helping students master their tests.

Most of all, if your son or daughter -- or you yourself are needing help with an application packet to college or graduate school, I'm the tutor for you because I have sat on these committees and I know what they're looking for -- and it's always a shock to those I help -- and they always get in!

ABD on PhD in English, MA in English, experience tutoring both native and non-native English speakers. I'm a grammar whiz and have more than a stellar grasp on English and UK grammar, stylistics, and syntax.

22 years teaching graduate and undergraduate students.

I'm very patient and kind! Would love to help you master writing, reading, or getting into the school of your dreams!" less...
