My professional experience is in journalism, government, and theatre. I have taught and lectured in Europe so I am very familiar with international and second-language students.

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.

Film

I have taught courses in film history and criticism at the university level. I have published articles on film in journals and reference works. I have also been a professional film critic. Thus I am able to offer multiple perspectives to film study and appreciation.

Reading

I have always loved to read, and I am inspired by the thought of helping students discover how important and fun it can be. Of course everyone knows that we need to read, but I like to show students how much it can add to their lives.

Writing

Nothing is more important than writing--you know that already. I've taught college students, graduate students, and professionals how to write better. I've published three books and hundreds of articles. I've also written a writing manual for auditors and fraud investigators. Let me help you become a better writer!
