"I am an experienced teacher and tutor. I'm knowledgeable, a good listener, articulate, caring, understanding, enthusiastic, fun and able to create a safe environment for students to express themselves and learn and grow. I appreciate the one-to-one experience of tutoring to get to know a student and figure out how we can best work together for the student to get what they need. I see myself as support for the student gaining both increased skills and more confidence.

Teaching experience is in the field of communication, such as Business Writing, Public Speaking, Listening and Interpersonal Communication. I have taught at many colleges and universities in the SF Bay Area and worked with adults at UC Berkeley Extension. I provided Business Writing classes to employees at UC Davis. I hold a California Community College Instructor Credential in Communication.

I have extensive tutoring experience with students from elementary school to college and beyond, including those for whom English is a second language, helping with writing (including college essays), speaking, reading comprehension and retention, critical thinking, homework, study and organizational skills.

For employees at UC Davis, I designed and taught classes in both Business Writing, including e-mails, and Writing Basics. As a teacher, I have corrected and graded many papers and learned what good writing looks like. Many of the professional hats I wear require me to express myself in writing in a variety of ways, which I do well. Proofreading experience also comes from all the papers I have graded. I have much experience teaching public speaking and see the correlation between it and effective writing, such as analyzing the audience, defining your purpose and organizing your thoughts." less...
