About this Instructor
LESSON FEES: $55 for a 30-minute lesson $65 for a 45-minute lesson $75 for a 60-minute lesson SUBJECTS: English Language Arts, Novel Writing, General Writing, Essay Writing, Creative Writing, Reading Comprehension, Reading I love when students get excited about writing, even reluctant writers. Whether they love to write or find it difficult, I make it fun and show them how to use their writing super powers! After graduating with a degree in communications and journalism, I published several fiction and nonfiction books as well as hundreds of newspaper, magazine articles and blog posts. I hosted a podcast called Teen Writers Publish for teens of all ages based on the bestselling Amazon book “Release the Novel in You.” While attending writing conferences for 20 years, I designed courses to teach my homeschooled kids how to write more descriptively. Aside from being a private writing tutor, I’ve taught in private schools, homeschool co-ops as well as writing programs to the public. While there’s no greater reward than seeing a confused or frustrated child light up with understanding, I love challenging the gifted to reach their full potential. No matter where your child’s writing falls, I’ll encourage, challenge, and take their writing to the next level. My guidance will inspire your child’s voice to be released, and my instruction will shape ideas into creative, cohesive, and impactful writing, which benefits every subject. TESTIMONIALS: "My son was really struggling with putting together his thoughts and getting them on paper. His sentences and paragraphs were very simple and basic. His writing was below grade level. Since your class, his writing has greatly improved! He feels much more confident and he uses your suggestions and techniques without any prompting from me. He said that he really enjoyed your class and I believe him because he retained info and uses it daily in his writing now.” -Jenny W., Homeschool Parent "One of my teen daughters attended Gina"s Paragraph/Creative Writing course. Gina draws out the writer hiding within you...no matter how deep down that writer within is buried. I highly recommend Gina as a writing instructor.” -Ronee J., Homeschool Parent
