Private tutor in Nashville, TN
University of Nebraska-Lincoln - Bachelors, journalism and English
I come from a family that has been in the newspaper publishing business for five generations, so it was no surprise when I chose to study Journalism and English when I went off to college at the University of Nebraska. I used my education to obtain work as a reporter at a variety of papers across the United States. I turned to writing fiction when my first child was born, so that I could stay in one place and raise her in person. I have now been published internationally through writing novels for Random House, and I also have experience teaching specific writing strategies in schools, and tutoring individuals. I like to keep learning fun and fresh, and my students seem to appreciate that. I have tutored many students over the years, and that child I mentioned? She earned perfect SAT scores in verbal and writing, along with a 100 percent on her IB extended essay. I have instilled in her, and all my students throughout the years, that writing is the most important skill academically and beyond, because it is required in all areas of life. A scientist needs to be able to write to publish papers. An employee needs to be able to write a comprehensible email to their boss. And I help students build good writing skills.
