Hello! I'm Elizabeth O'Brien, and my goal is to get you jazzed about grammar.

Your simple explanations about the seemingly complex English language have been wonderful for my students who did not "get" it. My students (most diagnosed with "serious" issues) can identify verbs/subject/object in sentences easily and verbalize why these are important in language.
