As an experienced high school and college writing and literature instructor, I have seen the power of good instruction in transforming lives. That's the essence of my educational philosophy: to help you think critically, expand your knowledge and express your ideas and experiences in clear and concise language. In short, transform your life.
I have advanced degrees in English, which means I can show you how to research, broaden your vocabulary, think at the highest levels and write powerfully.
I have been a reader/scorer for Education Testing Service and College Board, which means I know what it takes to achieve the top scores for SAT, PSAT, ACT, AP, and TOEFL, among other competitive essay exams.
I have taught scholarship writing and been an academic coach for college-bound and college students, which means I'll be working with you to reach your highest potential.
I have tutored non-native English speakers, adults returning to school, and students in all levels of writing and literature classes, which means that I'll work with you, starting at your individual skill level and, with patience and enthusiasm, help you advance toward your communication goals.
I have over 20 years of journalistic experience as a news and features writer (over 1,500 published articles), which means that I will show you the techniques for writing concisely, precisely and clearly - while finding and establishing your unique voice.
I have authored magazine articles and book chapters, published creative writing and critical thinking books (Sundance Publishers) and served on a magazine's editorial board, which means that I will bring a variety of skills and resources to each of our sessions.
Teaching is my vocation, which means that you will be working with someone who loves what he is doing. Writing and literature are my passions, which mean that you will find me an enthusiastic tutor.
