I am a retired college professor of English. My special areas of expertise are Writing, Editing, and Research-Paper Design. I have taught American, British, and Irish literature and poetry, as well.

My experience in private tutoring was in English-as-a-Second-Language both in the U.S. and during the four years I lived in Japan. I had been fluent in the Russian language, but that's rusty now! Additionally, I have taught Gender Studies at the college level. I am also knowledgeable about test-taking strategies, learning modalities, GED test-preparation, critical thinking skills, and students' learning disabilities and their accommodations.

I prefer students of college age and older.

My specialty is editing qualitative doctoral dissertations and Masters' theses.
