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

Methodology

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.

Background

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.
