Teaching since:
September 1980

Hi, I'm Marion. I bring a lifetime of experience helping people of all ages improve their writing, and English skills. My experience with second language learners is extensive. Whatever your skill set, age, abilities, or background, I can help make you a better writer.

I've worked with middle, high school and college students on developing the reading, writing and research skills needed for success in many academic areas. I've worked with second language learners on speaking, reading, and writing.

Preparing for essay tests is one of my areas of expertise, but my teaching philosophy is less about preparing for a particular test than it is about developing strategies that work for a broad number of tests and in real life situations.

I love working with adults and younger people on developing storytelling techniques, and public speaking skills for presentations and interviews, as well as for personal events. These are great confidence builders with real world results!

Whatever type of writing you need to work on, it would be my honor and privilege to work with you.
