I am semi-retired after 30+ years in journalism
, including 23 years at The Post-Standard in Syracuse. During my career, I honed my writing
, research, editing
, 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
. As you can see in my profile, I am also certified in a number of other subjects. I have worked extensively with Windows
operating systems, including Windows 8 and Windows 8.1.
I am also available to work with students in the art
of successful proofreading
, 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.

While I was out of town for 10 days, the young woman I'd been tutoring in ESL found a less expensive - perhaps even free - group program in Syracuse that she's now attending five days a week. We worked so well together and I know she was learning a lot,
so I'm hoping she'll realize that one-on-one, while more expensive, is the way to go if you want to learn quickly and receive all of the tutor's...
Very excited about the bright young woman from Brazil whom I started working with today in ESL. She is so eager to learn and very pleasant to work with so I think we'll accomplish a lot together!
