Geralyn Rea was born and raised in Wichita, KS, but journeyed north to complete her B.A. in English at Hillsdale College in Michigan. After graduating summa cum laude, she ventured down south to Texas to begin her Master of English degree at the University of Dallas. While working for the university and completing her degree, Geralyn also served as a writing, literature, and standardized testing tutor for homeschoolers in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. While tutoring, she rediscovered a passion for teaching, rivaled only by her love of the written word, and she is anxious to share both of these passions with all of her students. Geralyn lives with her husband and son near Dallas, TX.

"[Mrs. Rea] thank you for doing this writing class. I learned a lot. Thank you so much!"
"Before this class I had no idea how to write an essay or a paper, but now I can write an essay or paper easily."
"Before learning from you, I knew what I wanted to do, but I did not know how to do it. The immense time and effort you put into teaching your students well equipped us for the test we are planning to take. An organized view of everything we need to know in such a clear format was exactly what I needed. Teenagers are already stressed out about school and life in general - hearing that an important test isn't as bad as we think is certainly music to our ears! I feel so much more confident in this area when I was absolutely terrified just three months ago. The timed essay you asked for was actually the first one I have ever done. Although I didn't get to finish it, I knew exactly how to apply the skills I learned during class. It looked a lot better than I expected!
Thank you so much for offering your services. I can assure you that not only myself, but the other students as well, gained invaluable knowledge. I hope that I will have the opportunity to work with you in the future!"
