About Daymon

I have been tutoring writing and speech communication for years. While I enjoy teaching in the classroom, I have found students advance faster and achieve better grades with one-on-one discussion.

Expressing yourself through writing and speech can be fun. Trust me. But I understand that college courses can be intimidating. We will work together so that you clearly understand your assignments and what your instructor expects, and then I will help you develop a clear plan of action that breaks even the biggest assignments into easy chunks. Then, we will see your assignments through to the end, so that you can turn in polished, professional work.



I have worked with individuals at all levels of writing and speech proficiency, from beginning writers to graduate-level, from ESL to English grammar novices. I spent years editing the work of lawyers and judges before teaching at the college level. Everyone needs some help now and again!

I work hard to understand precisely what will help you the most and guide your process to becoming a great writer and speaker.

No matter your level, I am confident that after we work together, your writing and communication abilities will improve. Please contact me today so we can get you on the right path.

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.

English

I have worked as a copy editor, communications coordinator, and classroom instructor of writing, as well as a tutor for writing and public speaking.

Grammar

Working as a copy editor requires me to be thoroughly versed in the rules of English grammar. As a writing instructor and tutor, I am able to explain these rules in such a way that will allow you to apply them correctly for your needs.

Literature

I studied a broad range of literature while earning my BA from the University of Illinois. I am very familiar with the British and American canons and have some exposure to eastern works.

Proofreading

I have many years of experience in copy editing and proofreading. I have worked with technical information, material for general audiences, and academic writing.

Writing

I have tutored college students in writing and communication disciplines for approximately 3 years. I earned my BA in Rhetoric from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and my MA in communication from the University of Illinois at Springfield.
