If you struggled with sentences, paragraphs or the longer forms (essays, reports, etc.), I know I can help you improve your writing. I've worked with students and older adults for more than 30 years. Some of the men and women hadn't written a paragraph since high school, or even longer. And even though I've taught all that time, I still get excited about helping students and others improve their writing. There's no great mystery to do this. You have to deal only with concepts that lead to greater clarity and completeness in your writing. That means, among other things, not memorizing 11 comma rules, not laboring over Who and Whom, and learning to start taking some pride in your writing. Learn the rules, yes--and break them, if it leads to a clearer, more emphatic sentence. No sentence diagramming, no filling in blanks at the left, and no longer feeling intimidated--no matter what the writing assignment or challenge is.

I taught Language and Literature, at a community college in Southern California for 30 years; I was chairman of the department, and I have condensed my 30 years of teaching into a book. Your writing will improve when you can master the rules, respect them, and then set them aside when necessary, and begin to develop confidence in your writing.

You've been speaking and writing English for how many years now--10, 15, 20, more? If you studied ANYTHING for that length of time, you'd be good at it--very good, in fact. There's no reason why you can't learn to write clear, effective sentences, paragraphs, and essays that say exactly what you want them to say---and enjoy doing it, too.

I can show you how to do this....

Thank you.
