Writing and English Coach: experience teaching first-year university writing courses, teaching technical writing to engineers, and tutoring private students from elementary to doctoral levels.

About the lesson

Students through the years have said I am not like most English teachers ... because I focus on improving their English and writing skills through engagement.

A typical lesson plan examines students work, giving examples of how to improve, always an interactive process. Each lesson I emphasize one or two principles of writing/English.

What sets me apart is my experience with writing, knowing what professionals must write in most endeavors--what students call real-world experience. Also, I establish comfortable and meaningful rapport with all students. I meet them where they are and move their skills forward.

I have taught and tutored at all levels: elementary, high school, community colleges, and universities. Currently I am coaching a student through her PhD in educational leadership.
