I have been writing professionally and successfully for clients in the public, private, and academic sectors over 30 years. During this period, it has been demonstrated many times that clear and concise writing provides the foundation for excellent communication. That is, the art of writing is guided by grammar, mechanics, punctuation, spelling and diction, as well as effective sentences. These components, collectively, will enable a person to become a good writer and ultimately go from good to great. Therefore, I offer a practical and fundamental approach to writing principles that are applicable to letters, essays, research papers, book reports, progress reports, book reviews, annotated outlines, proposals, and the like.

During the Waterbury, Connecticut Public Schools' Academic School Year of 2010-2011, I taught for eight months in the capacity of a regular substitute teacher - at all levels, grades, and subjects with a focus on high schools. At the same time, I coached youth participating in the Police Athletic League's (PAL) basketball season in Waterbury, Connecticut. University teaching occurred at the graduate level with a focus on Quantitative Methods with subsequent report writing at Howard University and State University of New York at Buffalo. I did guest lecturing about city and urban planning to graduate students attending Texas Southern University - Houston, Texas, emphasizing writing of various types of written communications for planners. I also managed 30 graduate students to prepare a 5-Year Development Plan. This required teaching graduate students how to: (1) monitor and track work assignments; and (2) conduct various types of analyses such as commercial, demographic, land use, and database. Each of the aforementioned analyses required instructing students about the techniques in report writing. Finally, I have given motivation talks to students at the elementary, middle, and high school levels in both Houston, Texas and Chicago, Illinois - emphasizing the need to be a good writer.

Bible Studies

I have an earned doctorate since September 1988 and have been an active Christian from ten years of age. During this time span, I have attended Bible Study classes through the Baptist Training Union. Its purpose is to enlist, enlighten, train, and develop church leaders and members as a training organization of the Church. Currently, I am the co-facilitator for a Marriage Enrichment Ministry with its purpose being advancing God's Kingdom - One Spiritual Covenant at a Time.

My working knowledge of the Bible and corresponding Biblical training include understanding the structure of the Bible, both Old and New Testament. The Old Testament has 39 Books and they are divided as follows: Law (5 Books); History (12 Books); Poetry (5 Books); and Prophecy (17 Books). The New Testament has 27 Books and they are divided as follows: Gospel (4 Books); History (1 Book); Letters (21 Books); and Prophecy (1 Book). Finally, the Bible has three types of dispensations: Patriarchal, Jewish or Mosaic, and Christian.
