Learn proper English writing and grammar from long-time writer in one-on-one remote setting

Methodology

I get to know the student and their particular writing style and goals. What is it they want to accomplish with their writing. Start with basic grammar, review different styles, and practice writing.
Would like to work with beginners or younger students who need some extra help. Helping five children of my own, I have lots of patience and a real desire to keep writing a part of today's education.

Background

Bachelor of Arts in Education.
Review author's books for grammar and punctuation.
Write book reviews.
Write genealogy research projects.
Like working one-on-one to improve student's skills.
Raised five children and helped them all with writing skills needed for school.
Have completed several college level writing courses in creative writing, poetry, family history writing, etc. Like to use this material to help develop good thinking as well as writing.

Speaks pretty well now. Will work on confidence in public speaking and sentence flow. Good sense of humor. Was fun after we resolved the logistics.
