For as long as I can remember, I have had a particular knack for expression. It has shown up in several forms throughout my lifetime, but one of the most pronounced ways in which I learned to communicate effectively was through the written word. In fact, when I was a child, while other kids were outside learning tricks on their razor scooters, I was indoors, obsessively penning what I was sure would be the world’s next great novel (and screenplay…and breakthrough speech…and award-worthy essay).
While I did not, in fact, go on win any Pulitzers by the end of high school (much to the dismay and chagrin of my 13 year-old self), I did go on to study different forms of writing at a young age as a member of several different communications-oriented organizations, and even began my career as a journalist. But I soon discovered that there was something that moved me even more than my innate passion for verbal expression – and that was a deep desire to help others express themselves as well.
I have spent over 15 years a tutor, and I help people from ages 12-65 process, write, and edit works that not only achieve, but surpass, their desired results. From drafting persuasive essays to writing stirring speeches to editing corporate emails to designing and sound boarding presentations, I have had the opportunity to assist with it all; and somewhere between my school-aged kiddos, collegiate scholars, corporate execs, creative types, and those with whom an ink pen should not be trusted (*wink*), I learned how to adapt my communication and writing style to suit the specific needs of each student. It’s a process that seems to work for me – I have earned a 4.9 rating on my site, and have clocked over 400 hours in my quest to help people learn to communicate as effectively as possible!
