About Douglas

I am a college professor and I am also in my last year of an EdD program at Pepperdine University in West Los Angeles. I greatly enjoy teaching, and love writing, so helping people improve their written skills is important to me, as I believe that having good communication skills is a vital component in today's workplace. My teaching experience also includes some tutoring, and I enjoy working one-on-one with people to improve their skill levels as one can generally see results more quickly than in a large classroom of students. I love writing and I also love history, so if you are in need of anyone to teach these subjects, or anything else that I am qualified to teach at your organization, please contact me!

I have worked as a professional copywriter for several online publications where I wrote hundreds of articles that were all published. I have also taught English Composition at the college level for more than five years, both online and on-site, and I taught English punctuation, grammar, and word usage to court reporting students for more than three years, which focused on the mechanical aspects of writing. I have also taught public speaking, and being a former actor, I incorporate theater techniques to public speaking training, which serves to break down barriers and enhance the more enjoyable aspects of speaking in front of an audience.

I love World History, and especially like to study aspects of 20th Century world history as it is a fascinating time period in which many incredible, and horrific, things took place that have helped shape our modern world. Knowledge of history is essential to understanding the world around us, and I love teaching anything to do with almost any epoch of world history.

I am very easy to get along with and can help you achieve greater accomplishments in your writing and speaking capabilities, or any other subjects that you may need assistance with. You'll see rapid progress with each lesson, and see quick results in your work, as I can help you with things such as coherence and clarity in your writing, confidence in your public speaking abilities, and perspective in your understanding of history, Lessons will be tailored to help you in your own particular area of need, and you will be very pleased with the knowledge you gain and the skills that you obtain.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
