Tutoring
As a 43-year veteran educator, I have tutored students from kindergarten through college level, including those seeking grade level promotion, GED, ACT, SAT, and organizing the workload of the college student. My strong English background, coupled with having six years of Latin, has enabled me to coach students in preparing research papers, and even completing Doctoral Dissertations. I have created techniques I call test besting to help students finish standardized tests in the time allotted. For this service, I charge $40.00 per hour.

Technical Writing & Proofing
I am a professional content and technical editor. I make sure the reader understands the "who, what, where and why" of your book, and I make sure your grammar and syntax and spelling are correct. At my writing workshops, I begin by saying, "You never get a second chance to make a first impression," meaning that once you publish a document with your name on it, you can expect to be judged as worthy or unworthy by those who read your work. For this service, I first offer a contract tailored to your writing needs and anticipated publication date, with a retainer fee of $150.00, after which I charge $75.00 per hour until you publish. You can meet me in person or communicate via emails and Word attachments until you're satisfied your book.

This is your story, so you're the author and I'm the editor, regardless of the amount of copy I write. For this service,
