With over 25 years in case management and counseling, I will bring my expertise to each student with an individualized approach that will leave you renewed, recharged and invigorated to make the needed changes in one's life. Now let's get started!

About Jonita S.

I believe in setting great expectations and celebrating small accomplishments, they, in turn, lead to bigger ones. I love working with children and have made this my business for over twenty years.

I have a bachelor's degree in psychology, a minor in marketing and a Master's of fine art's degree in writing. I am a certified High school English teacher, private writing coach, and a published author of two books. I have founded the Royal Writers Organization, a nonprofit writing program for children and have brought workshops to children, schools and their community institutions for the last 9years.

I was that child who wrote and read under my covers with a flashlight, way after the time my parents told me to go to sleep. I wrote until my pencil forged its resting place on the side of my finger. This passion for writing is what I want for my students, and of which I have succeeded in bringing forth in varying degrees. I enjoy traveling to the worlds that lie within books and look forward to taking my students along with me.

My daughter needed help with her writing portfolio for an audition. I knew that the competition was going to be fierce and while I believe that my daughter has real talent I also knew that she needed help organizing here ideas. Needless to say, she was selected to participate in the writing program. We both know that Jonita’s guidance and collaboration helped her achieve that goal. Jonita’s teaching style is exceptional and refreshing. My daughter hopes to work with her again as she transitions to the next stage of her journey as a young writer.

A great resource for teaching young writers to elaborate and cite evidence. Both are key components to being a successful writer for the state writing Assessment.

My kids' school teachers and classmates were very impressed with their writing skills after attending writing workshops with Jonita. She has a gift for inspiring children and they always have a great time.

When I first started writing my screenplay for a short story I'm directing and producing, I had a limited time to write, direct, edit and submit to a "once a year" film festival in Orlando Florida. I ran into a bunch of obstacles, from using the correct grammar, to punctuation's, spelling and inconsistencies in the story line. She was very clear and concise when she spoke. I don't know what she did but her method of teaching allowed me to relax and open my mind, and allowed me to absorb and remember every single writing technique she's given me. I am proud to say that my short film was finished in time to enter the festival. Thanks to Jonita it is now 3 months later and I have finished my fourth short screenplay, now starting my fifth. She is just amazing, I'm so happy I found her to work with me.
