Imaginative creative writer wants to help you with ideas and write creatively.

Methodology

I believe students should always have fun while learning to write, or in learning any new skill. Entertained students will better enjoy and remember what they learn, and be more willing to continue practicing new skills in the future.

Background

Fell in love with words and images as a child at a very young age, and can help you. Students have reported improved grades after having assistance from me in thinking of new ideas, organizing their writing, proofreading their work.

I have known Lisa for most of her life, she grew up in our community and church. I have always thought Lisa to be highly intelligent, kind and thoughtful person. Lisa has raised her own children with these same values.
