About Jay

I have a Master's in Education from Shippensburg University. Upon graduating college, I taught 11th- and 12th-grade English and coached junior high varsity basketball. I also taught two honors classes: The Modern American Novel and Contemporary European Literature. My first three basketball teams won county championships, the first two going undefeated. Overall, in five years of coaching, my teams were 66-9.

I returned to teaching writing and English at Penn State University as a part-time adjunct in the last few years of corporate work, and as a full-time adjunct for one year before moving to Florida. During my time in Florida, I have taught at Gulf Coast Community College, Tallahassee Community College and Florida State University.

Overall, I have studied words and language, writing and communications for over 40 years. It's the world I live in daily and the passion of my life. Additionally, I have helped four writers complete books and get published, serving as a book coach and editor ... a children's book, a collection of poetry, and two memoirs.

Throughout my years teaching, students routinely told me I was unlike any other English teacher they had had, that I made English and writing enjoyable, that I was the first one to truly teach writing that helped them improve, often saying I was the best teacher or professor in their experience.

I seek excellence in all I do, and I get results.

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.

Public Speaking

Teaching for a few years as an adjunct English professor at Penn State University, York Campus, I taught public speaking in the course, Rhetoric & Composition.
