I currently tutor children from grades 1-6 in the art of writing. I focus on basic sentence structure, paragraphs, and essays. My goal is to make writing fun for everyone. I run a creative writing website, www.ccwi.net, as well as a website dedicated to the joys of figurative language, www.figurativewriting.com. I am the author of Adventures in Writing: A FUN Guide to Figurative Language. https://www.figurativewriting.com/shop/
I am a big cheerleader. I'm very enthusiastic about writing, and can get even the most reluctant writers to pick up their pencils. As a teacher leader with the Cal State Northrdige Writing Project and the Los Angeles Writing Project, I am constantly studying effecting strategies to teach writing.
I am a fellow at the Los Angeles Writing Project and a Teacher Leader at the Cal State Northridge Writing Project.

I live in Southern California with my family, including a beagle named Snickers. My workbook, Adventures in Writing: A FUN Guide to Figurative Language is for sale on Amazon and also on my website.
