About Perry

Dear Students,

Presently I work as a freelance copywriter, copy editor, and proofreader specializing in print- and web-based projects. My strengths are: writing concise paragraphs, creating bold, provocative sentences, and identifying spelling, punctuation, and grammatical errors. I have proofed and edited dozens of medical journals and textbooks. Most recently I worked on DVD releases for Sony Entertainment and CBS/Paramount. A former literary agent, I have a B.A. in English from Towson University in Maryland. I offer a unique combination of creativity and technical skill.

My approach to tutoring is to build on the strengths of the student. I will show you how to structure your first draft, which you will then rewrite and revise, producing a powerfully written piece. Someone once said that “writing is rewriting.” I believe once you support the basic facts and information (i.e., in a term paper), you are then free to explore the creative aspects of language and writing. The “content” is the information you provide through research, the “context” is the style of the writing, and the finished product – a beautifully written paper – is one that instructors and teachers will compliment and grade highly.

Finally, I believe effective writing is a valuable tool...and students should have fun learning it.

Thank you!

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.

Proofreading

Years ago I was a professional proofreader for a medical publisher in Baltimore, the Williams & Wilkins Company at Waverly Press.

That was the perfect training ground as all the chemical compounds and medical terms had to be perfect, otherwise the paper could not be published.

Writing

I have been a freelance writer for 15+ years.
