I am a writer, editor and publisher.
In thirteen semesters as a college writing instructor, I graded/edited approximately four thousand essays, stories and poems, as well as over six thousand revisions.
I also taught for several years in Upward Bound and Veterans Upward Bound, both of which are pre-college programs designed to prepare aspiring students for success on the college level.
I have edited and published original work from over fifty professional writers since 2007, including Amiri Baraka, Ed Sanders, Amy King and Maurice Manning.
My comprehension of the various genres of writing, attained through fifteen years of education and practical experience, makes me an excellent tutor.
The following is an excerpt from a recommendation written for me by a former Director of Upward Bound:
“He has the ability to motivate and educate students from age 14 to 65. He has demonstrated his ability to educate diverse groups of students and work through students' disabilities. He can quickly create rapport with his classes and students on an individual level. His creative writing pedagogy allows him to keep classes relevant and timely and has been key in his successes.”
