About Terrence

I was born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska, where I practiced law for some 25 years. As I will explain in a paragraph below, this experience brought life and depth to my formal training. In 1994 my wife and I married. We have two children (now grown), and of course raising those children has, as is common for parents, also taught be to teach. We moved to Florida in 2004, so that my wife could attend ministry training college. We have been here ever since. We have lived in the Freeport area for about five years now.

I have taught college-level courses before, as an adjunct law professor when I was in Fairbanks. I also taught a number of firearms-related courses, as a NRA-certified instructor. As a board member and commissioner with the Boy Scout council in Alaska, I have also taught children numerous subjects.

I learned the basic rules of grammar in school, but they really came to life for me when I wrote legal documents for a living. I strive for excellence in composition, and want to help those I tutor to also desire writing in excellence also. I also am knowledgeable in a variety of other subjects, some of which are specified on this site.

I encourage students and their parents to contact me to learn more about me, and to schedule lessons.

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.

ACT English

I am an attorney who, in the course of my career, has mentally prepared myself for my work by paying particular attention to how I write and talk. Thus I am constantly on the alert to mistakes in how I phrase things.

I have taught several college-level law-related courses. This experience also enables me to be a better tutor.

I of course studied English Literature in college, as well as grammar in grade school, junior high, and high school. I can recall being instructed in diagraming sentences; something I now often do without really thinking about it.

I studied French and German in high school in college. Studying those languages also equipped me to better understand how the principles of grammar work in most languages, English as well as those foreign tongues.

Political Science

I have a degree in History, and am quite familiar with other aspects of Political Science. In my history studies, both formally and on my own, I have made myself familiar with the political questions of our time. I follow and care about current events. And, as a lawyer, I know about the details of many constitutional issues.
