Clarice D. of Portland OR USA Tutor Profile

Tutor Personal Information

Name: Clarice D.
Gender: Female   Age: 51-65
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I offer online tutoring services for high school, college, and graduate students as well as for speakers of English as a second language (ESL)and adults in the workplace.

My passions include language, writing, storytelling, and accelerated/brain-based learning, as well as teaching. I believe that all writing tells a story and that it is my job to teach you how to tell YOUR story in the clearest, most effective way possible.

Because I work completely online, you can be located anywhere in the world. Even if you are located in Portland, Oregon (where I live), online writing tutoring is an optimal solution because it eliminates travel time and expense and enables you to join our sessions wherever you happen to be. (All you need is a laptop and earphones.)

I also believe it is the best pedagogical choice because it focuses our learning--almost like a laser beam--and enables us to revise your writing in real time.

My expertise in languages and writing developed over the years as a result of a BA in German and French, an MA in Linguistics, an MA in Writing, and extensive experience teaching writing composition and English as a second language courses in universities and community colleges.
