About George

I really enjoy teaching young people who are motivated to improve. The best part for me is to see the enthusiasm of students when they succeed. I have spent more than two decades as a professional writer and have spent quite a bit of time helping interns along the way. Some of them now have careers as professional writers.

I am a radio news reporter by trade. During my career -- I reported on a number of high profile stories, which required me to do a lot of creative writing. The objective in putting together these types of stories is to truly engage the listener...or in this case the reader. In my opinion, this means organizing your thoughts and presenting them in a unique way so they stand out and make people think. This is my expectation for myself and students.

I definitely want to keep students challenged. At the same time, I do not want them to feel overwhelmed. I also recognize and appreciate that each student is different and learns in different ways, so adjusting my teaching methods based on their specific personalities will be challenging, but fun as well.

Since safety is always of concern with parents (I am one myself), I would prefer to teach kids in a public place such as a public library, coffee house, or some other similar type location. Teaching a child at their home is acceptable, as long as one parent is always present.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping in any way that I can!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Bodybuilding

I was a competitive bodybuilder for five years. I competed in regional competitions in the Pacific Northwest as a middle weight. I have trained with some of the most elite bodybuilders in that region and have put together nutritional programs for competitors.

Business

I have owned and operated my own real estate investment company. I have strong knowledge about fundamentals of business, such as ensuring return on investment, minimizing risk, and looking for leverage opportunities.

Public Speaking

I was a radio news reporter for 23-years and have done a number of live and recorded stories for on-air use. I have also done public speaking in the past where I addressed students interested in learning more about radio news reporting.

Writing

I have spent more than two decades as a radio news reporter. During that time, I have written a number of stories for on-air and online use. I have also worked in public relations and have submitted quite a few press releases to gain news coverage from mainstream media.
