Retired College Professor teaches College Reading and Writing, ESL and Business Communication Online

Methodology

First and foremost, I am a facilitator. I am good at asking questions in order to get students to discuss their own thoughts, ideas and dreams. Then, I can help the student to formulate those thoughts into an email, college paper, essay, report, powerpoint or presentation.

Background

I have worked in a variety of settings. When I was in college, I wanted to be the Renaissance Woman, so I studied in no fewer than 20 different departments. After college, I taught writing in a number of colleges, participated in Software Architecture projects with IASA and The Gates Foundation as well as wrote grants for non-profit organizations.
