In addition to being certified by the Institute for Excellence in Writing, the tutor, Sherry Luiz, is a former high school English teacher who has earned a degree in English, two California teaching credentials, and a Language Development Specialist certificate.  Teaching writing classes to homeschoolers for over fifteen years, and a homeschooling mom herself, Mrs. Luiz is passionate about initiating students into the “mysteries” of good writing, striving to help all her pupils become competent in the craft.  She and her amazing husband Tony and their three “never-a-dull-moment” children, Isaac, Sonia and Julia, along with the family dog, Chloe, live in the central valley of California.  (They like to say they live “100 miles west of Yosemite.”)
