I am semi-retired after 29 years in journalism, including 23 years at The Post-Standard in Syracuse. During my career, I honed my writing, research, editing, reading, grammatical, spelling and many other English-related skills on a daily basis and I feel that that experience gives me excellent credentials to tutor students on related subjects. I am also a skilled computer user and especially like working with seniors who want to learn about the internet from a patient and understanding teacher.
Over the years, I was an occasional substitute teacher and during my newspaper career, I mentored a number of young journalists.
I believe my English and computer skills would be invaluable to students of any age, and I welcome the opportunity to tutor students in the sometimes complicated world of English, including ESL and ESOL. As you can see in my profile, I am also certified in a number of other subjects.
I am also available to work with students in the art of successful proofreading (spelling, grammar, sentence structure, punctuation) of papers, reports, journals or stories.
If you are looking to brush up on your computer skills - or simply learn your way around Facebook - I can help you with those kinds of things as well.
