My more than 20 years of work experience includes teaching English in China to adult professionals, years of substitute teaching in Chicago public high schools, teaching remedial writing classes to college students, and working as a tutor in Northeastern Illinois University's writing lab. I have also worked for many years as a freelance business writer and editor.
I find working one-on-one with students to help them figure out how to craft an essay to be extremely satisfying work. My goal is to encourage them to find their own voices as writers within the structures of the academic essay. If you are looking for a patient guide to the intricacies of Standard English and its professional and academic uses, including standardized test preparation, I'm your man.
