"With a B.A. in English and Writing, I have worked in many different areas from proofreading and editing to writing and publishing. I homeschooled my children from kindergarten to college which gave me experience in teaching all levels from elementary through high school. I have worked with college students and grade school children in ministry for the past 25 years and am familiar with all learning levels as well as any cultural background.

For high school or college students, I can help you by proofreading your writing and suggesting ways to make it better or we can work together to create your writing project from the beginning. I am willing to commit to long term, larger projects, such as Master's or PhD theses, as well as simple, one page essays that you may need to submit to me on short notice when you have an upcoming due date. I have experience tutoring students as they prepare for the reading and writing sections of standardized tests such as the SAT and ACT exams, as well as the GED, HiSET, and Praxis.

For parents of children, I can help your child love the subject of Language Arts by "lighting a fire, instead of just filling a bucket." I have experience teaching reading and writing at all school levels, including ESL students. For homeschooling families, I'm willing to help you develop a fun to use curriculum or I can privately teach your children the areas you feel unable to instruct on your own.

Recently, I began volunteering with a local community literacy group by teaching adults to read and write. With this organization I have gained experience with ESL adult students and adult learners of all ages. I truly believe confidence and joy in reading and writing opens doors, minds, imaginations, and hearts. My goal is to encourage reluctant readers to develop an ear for the wonders found in books and apprehensive writers to express their inner voice in words!
