Hi, my name is Cynthia G. I am a freelance writer in multiple genres with seven books and numerous stories and articles to my publishing credit. Various educational and vocational experiences have contributed to a comprehensive knowledge base. A firm believer that higher education need not equate to vocational training, I hold a B.A. in Russian Language and Literature from The George Washington University in Washington, DC, and optimized my lifelong Spanish language study with two summers of total-immersion study at Middlebury College Language Schools in Middlebury, Vermont. I attended the Sheffield School of Aeronautics in Miami, FL and obtained FAA licensure as an aircraft dispatcher. I subsequently dispatched jet aircraft for Midwest Express Airlines in Milwaukee and Federal Express (FedEx) in Memphis. I also spent four years as a verbatim court reporter before becoming a freelance writer.
I am the author of two published novels, as well as nonfiction dog-breed books. My other writing credits include a five-volume educational video set on the U.S. Presidents, an educational video on Washington, DC, and numerous print and online magazines and websites.
I am a member of the American Society of Authors and Journalists, the Women's National Book Association, and the Dog Writers Association of America. I am a long-time adjunct tutor at the U.S. Naval Academy's Writing Center, where future naval officers learn that excellent writing skills, both academic and professional, are crucial to success. I provide writing tutelage to secondary-school students for college application essays, written assignments of all lengths for students of all levels, and interview preparation.
A typical tutoring session may involve reviewing a student's specific writing assignment, providing feedback and assistance, and assigning a revision for further review. SAT preparation involves reviewing practice essays in student-provided SAT-preparation books, and revising for speed, clarity, accuracy. Tutoring sessions may be accomplished online or in person at a mutually convenient public location.
