EducationMA, Education, UC Berkeley, 2002
Secondary English Teaching Credential with CLAD certification for teaching English to speakers of other languages.
ExperienceI have 14 years' experience teaching and tutoring in private homes, public schools, and the UC Berkeley Academic Talent Development Program. I also have extensive experience as a professional writer and editor.
As a teacher, tutor, and writing coach, I provide students with the personalized feedback that they need to improve their writing fluency and composition skills. I help students to recognize and use their own strengths to develop their academic skills. When it comes to homework support, I can help students to better understand the expectations, and I can guide them toward the skills they need to meet or exceed those expectations. Alternately, I can work with the student to develop an independent academic enrichment program that will strengthen his or her preparation for college.
I help both young people and adults to articulate their ideas and get them down on the page in a clear, well-organized (and often even beautiful) form.
HobbiesArt history, painting, sculpture, collage, anthropology, science fiction, world history and current events
