I have been a professional writer for 40 years. This includes having published over 500 articles, books, eBooks, short stories and poems. I have also acted as a writer consultant for several authors. I have ghostwritten one book. I am presently ghostwriting a book on addiction for a doctor.

I am also an award-winning writer/filmmaker. I acted as a writer consultant for MGM's $56 million movies, "Warriors of Virtue", for American Pictures "The Lost Heart" and "Born to Kill". I have story credit for Incline Productions Inc.'s "Born to Win." I also wrote, directed, and produced "Faces", "Oh, The Places You Can Go...!", and the award-winning "The Sand Creek Massacre."

With respect to tutoring, I go over the basics of writing with students. I recommend books on writing to read. I construct writing exercises for them to do to test their skills. I also give assignments to test students' on what they have learned.

I am known to be an open-minded and focused person. My philosophy with respect to tutoring is to be non-intimidating, but firm and business-like. I will get down in the trenches with students to help them out should I see that is needed. I do not believe in criticizing students. I always focus on the positives of what they are doing and how to improve upon what I am teaching them.
