Tutor Personal Information

Name: Mrs Amber F.
Gender: Female   Age: 41-50
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

While home schooling my two gifted and talented children, I have worked as a published freelancer with credits including feature stories, humorous column writings, and humorous satires of politics and culture. Clients include the award-winning Huntsville Item, Simon & Schuster, publisher of Humor for a Teachers Heart (now in its third printing), and The Daily Mooch. I've also written industry tech articles and worked as the HTML editor for The Christian PEN, a national association of independent editors and writers whose members include New York Times best-selling ghostwriter Cecil Murphy. I am most familiar with the Chicago Manual of Style, but I also am familiar with the Associated Press Stylebook.

I also have extensive experience in print design, from creating and developing business cards, to flyers, promotional materials, and full-color magazines and posters. Former clients include the Lake Livingston Tourism Council and Crappiefest magazine,

I also have a strong background writing for the Internet, as well as creating high-end original Web sites and original Internet-ready artwork, manipulating images, coding HTML Web sites, and domain management and hosting. Clients include Brentwood Club, Demand Studios, eHow, and the Christian PEN (for which I designed and maintained the original 70 page PEN website, as well as the organizations original quarterly newsletter).

I have advised business owners regarding how to effectively use pay-per-click campaigns for their existing Web sites and how to rewrite the text and meta tags on existing Web sites to attract the search engines and move up higher in search result rankings (search engine optimization).
