EducationDuring my career in advertising, marketing and public relations I took college courses to gain information about job requirements. During this time I attended: the University of Arizona and Arizona State University, El Camino College in Manhattan Beach, California, USC, UCLA, and Palomar College in San Marcos, California
ExperienceI tutored writing for the Palomar College English Department Writing Center for ten years. As a teacher's aide in an elementary school, I worked with students who needed help with reading, writing and spelling and I devised a way to help the students write and publish their first book of fiction short stories. I have worked in the advertising business and as a freelance nonfiction writer. In addition, I reported and wrote business and special interest features for a local newspaper winning seven journalism awards. In 2005 and 2012 I published books of fiction and am currently editing a third book, a novel. I love tutoring students and helping them improve their writing skills.The process is gratifying for me to see them grow in writing ability beyond their expectations.
HobbiesI read anything and everything, and always have a book or two to recommend regardless of a student's age. I love dogs and cats and all creatures, but especially dogs as I have one who is my pal. I like well-written movies and TV shows. I have visited several foreign countries in which I now have friends, and I speak a little Spanish, French, Italian and Japanese. Finally, I believe that written communication is the key to knowledge because sharing what you know in writing opens doors to friendship and to the world in general.
