Writing Tutor for All Ages in Long Beach Area with Over Ten Years' Experience

I love to engage my students in the joy of writing by finding out what interests them, what some of there concerns are, and to start from there in expanding their writing skills. I believe that everyone can write, and write well. They just need a little encouragement and coaching.

Lessons are available for the following levels: primary school, junior high / middle school, sophomore, junior, senior, advanced technical certificate, college, adult education, MBA, ilr level 0, ilr level 1, ilr level 2, ilr level 3, ilr level 4, ilr level 5, other, beginner, intermediate, advanced, proficient, for children
I give lessons in person at my home, the student's home or meeting in public locations.

Patricia's Experience

I bring to my tutoring a breadth of experience and education, ranging from teaching young children to working with doctoral candidates. I have an MFA in Creative Writing, and also edit books - fiction and non-fiction - as well as academic papers. I am also a mother and a grandmother, and love to work with young children.
