Writing tutor and coach in Charlotte with 8 years of helping students and professionals communicate their ideas and beliefs clearly and effectively

Methodology

My teaching methodology is inquiry based. As an educator I understand that the very root of the word education is 'educare' which means to bring up. So as an educator my approach is to provide instruction by asking questions that trigger curiousity and thinking about their own ideas, writing, and language acquisition. Instead of simply presenting facts, established principles and concepts, and rules I start by executing creative strategies to bring up what is already inside of my students to help them make an emotional connection to what they are trying to learn or master. This approach helps them to not only acquire the know-how but to incorporate their learning into their lives so that they can use and recall it whenever it is needed.

Background

I am a life long writer with a Master of Fine Arts degree from one of the most prestigious art schools in America- Savannah College of Art and Design. I am a published poet and essayist. I have both coached and tutored undergraduate students in the discipline of poetry as well as coached professionals in business to craft and write marketing content.
