About this pro

I hold degrees in creative writing and writing, have experienced 15 hemorrhagic brain strokes and 4 cerebral vascular neurosurgeries. 

After having come through, using my resilience, I stayed the course, graduated high school, took a BA in Creative Writing and an M.Ed. in Writing. My resilience is what lets me assist others, successfully, through academic writing and with work-contingent communication, too.

I love helping people who need assistance with what they need to do to proceed in life. I have helped and continue to help people proceed through academic pursuits and applied communication tasks that they require help in successfully accomplishing.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I assist students by phone, e-mail, text message and in-person. My rule of thumb is that the customer is always right; therefore, if, after the first 3 to 4 tutoring sessions, it is realized that the working relationship is not ideal, I return all money that has been paid and try to assist the client in finding a suitable professional.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I hold a Master's degree in Writing Education that I tutored and mentored my way through and have successfully assited elementary, community college, university and graduate school students with their learning, writing and research needs.

I specialize in higher education poetry, composition and test taking strategies.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My hourly rate is $30; however, I have extended the invitation to clients to offer alternative payment methods, rates and schedules, if they apprise me that, due to the need to concentrate, most, on research, they have establish a weekly or bi-weekly method for compensating me.


How did you get started teaching?

I held a degree in Creative Writing and was living and writing in Seattle, Washington in 2000, when I decided I needed a change of scenery; therefore, I pointed my car Eastward and drove back to where I was raised. On the East Coast, I began to tutor elementary school students, as I resumed writing, editing and proofreading. Then, I tutored on the community college, the university and graduate school levels of education, as I took a graduate degree in Writing.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have assisted elementary school students who were at-risk; then, I tutored Writing on the community college level.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I was able to help several students attain written competence as a Writing Mentor of Student Athletes at The University of Maryland; however, one I helped through multiple classes has made it to the highest realm of competition.

He or she had left school early, then had not been successful. Therefore, I helped him or her with the writing-contingent remainder of his or her degree, allowing the degree to be taken, upon the individual's return to school.

He or she graduated and, soon thereafter, signed a multi-year contract for $7,000,000. His or her real mission was to help and guide other, younger individuals to do as he or she had done, such to let them realize their lives' full potentials.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Especially, brain stroke survivors require repetition of communication. Do not hesitate before requesting the restatement of any instruction until you are certain you have it down, pat.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

I believe that the teacher is responsible for meeting the needs of the student. Therefore, any question is a very viable, good question. Please do not hesitate before asking any question.
