Compassionate Coaching


About this tutor

Hi! My name is Angie. I specialize in improving writing, language and literature skills. I provide holistic support beyond traditional academics, including stress management and personal organization. I have a BA in English, a Master's in Education, and I have conducted a graduate research project improving the writing of 4th graders. I have years of classroom teaching experience, including learning disabilities, behavior issues, ADD/ADHD, and autism spectrum disorder. I have also worked as a personal assistant, university TA, and office manager. I am also an active student of fine art, psychology and mindfulness. My approach emphasizes the mind-body connection, self-compassion and relaxation strategies. I believe we all have unique voices to offer the world, and we reach our best creative potential when we are able to recognize and move through natural, yet challenging feelings of stress, anxiety and frustration. Essentially, I want all people to feel capable, respected, and accepted. I want to get to know you, your interests and your best learning style. Let's get creative and have fun!

My Education and Experience:

-BA - English

-MA.Ed - Special Education, 5 years classroom experience

-8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course

-Recently completed psychology coursework (~18 credits)

-Crisis Counselor Volunteer Work (on-going)

It is rewarding to work individually with learners, explore their unique challenges, and come up with creative approaches and strategies to build on their skills. My clients can expect unconditional support, free from judgement, and my commitment to their personal growth and empowerment.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First, I want to get clear on your most important goals. Then I will ask for a little about your background and history pertaining to your goals. I will look at your past or current work to get a sense for a starting level. Based on my first impressions, I will gather materials that I think will target your individual needs and build on your strengths. We will start practicing from there. I coach writers through all phases of writing. Some students need to build confidence in the "brain-storming" or idea phase of writing, others need organization, and most writers need feedback on spelling, grammar and conventions. We will work through all of these areas at your pace, with careful attention to stress or anxiety surrounding these skills. I will review your work, and we will work together to solve problems and improve your writing skills.
