I am a graduate of Colorado State University and have been involved in education for over 30 years. I have had the opportunity to work with some great teaches over the years. As an educational software trainer in English and Math, I was able to work with teachers throughout the country.

I have worked with students from 11 years of age to adults. Most recently I have been tutoring adults with respect to English. The 3 primary elements I have been addressing are reading, speaking, writing and study skills. As we all know, time management and organizational skills are vital with respect to improved study habits.

As I indicated previously, I believe that practice does make perfect. Remember the old joke about the individual who is walking down the street in New York and asked how he could get to Carnegie Hall? The answer of course is PRACTICE, PRACTICE and more PRACTICE!

I have also been involved in business in Colorado for many years.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

I will be happy to discuss how I may be of assistance with respect to your writing project. Certainly, sentence structure, paragraph development, punctuation and research will be key aspects of proper presentation.

Writing

My primary concerns with respect to Academic Writing are:

thesis statement,
sentence structure,
paragraph development,
logical progression of ideas.
grammar and punctuation

It is of the utmost importance for all of these elements to be addressed to achieve a properly written paper.
