I live in the state of Florida near the ocean. I have a degree in Journalism from Georgia State University and served as a writer and photographer for the US Military for four years. I have written one book and have plans for 4 more. Because I have such a great love of English and all its complexities, I enjoy helping others improve their grasp and skill in the language as well. I have more than 20 years of teaching experience at all levels from children to adults. My specialty is speaking for correctness and clear communication. I am a very patient teacher and prefer to combine visual clues such as images, words, and props with slow, clear enunciation to allow students the opportunity to make connections between the words they are hearing and objects they are familiar with in their every day life.
