I am creative in many things I do, including writing poetry and short stories, cooking, photography, growing plants and teaching! I have long been in love with books and stories, art and painting, plants and creatures! And as a father and teacher, (and a lawyer, too) I get much joy from passing on my passion and knowledge to others. I love writing creatively! I have a love for sentences, words and even letters! My writing can be serious, poignant, sad, joyous or rip-roaringly funny! Please let me tutor you and give you an appreciation of English which I have been blessed with. Be it writing skills, grammar, punctuation, vocabulary, syntax, I will show you how its done, and help you enjoy it as well!

My approach to tutoring is two-fold: First, in conversing with the student, I ascertain his/her strengths and weaknesses. This will allow us to concentrate on what the student needs most in terms of tutoring. Once we have learned the focus of our studies, we will undertake to make the student an expert in that area, by means tried and true, as well as new and innovative. Such one-on-one attention may be just what the student needs to push him/her over the top with that subject that is providing difficulty. We will not be merely student and teacher; we will be partners in learning!

PS: If you need to give extra attention to history, art history, geography, political science, philosophy, or the liberal arts, in general, I'm your man!
