I have worked in the public school system for 9 years teaching English and creative writing. Prior to that, I tutored children and adults with learning difficulties in the areas of reading comprehension, math, writing and all areas of SAT prep.
I rarely lecture, as it puts many of them to sleep. I have been trained with the Six Traits and use that method to teach voice, conventions, word choice, ideas, organization and sentence fluency. Students are grouped by mixed ability and peer teach with some lessons.

I began college in MD, moved to Florida and continued my education at Valencia Community College while working full-time. I completed a BA in English at University of Central Florida.
