About Jay

I have taught as adjunct faculty in a variety of communication courses at 7 universities and colleges over a period of 24 years. During most of that time I was an FM public radio manager, and I was directly involved in on-air programming. My responsibilities in broadcasting and the classroom always involved young people who had a desire to improve their communication skills, and perhaps pursue a career in a related field. It was always a rewarding experience for me to teach and mentor individuals whose sincerity and determination were shared with me.

I have grown children and young grandchildren. Most of my life has been filled with music playing the piano accordion. My full-time career positions after radio broadcasting have included managing, producing and promoting special events that support the arts, specific causes, and organizations in service to persons with special needs or who are underserved. Tutoring is an extension of this for me, and the one-on-one aspect of achieving results is very rewarding and exciting.

Both of my college degrees included an equal component of speech communication skills alongside the media classes. I've always been comfortable making presentations to groups or being involved with individual interpersonal communication. I've taught over 80 sections of communication courses at 7 universities and colleges as adjunct faculty. I've been a professional broadcaster.

Writing has always been a creative outlet. Themes, book reports, term papers and special projects as a student were always welcome assignments. There's a rewarding learning process that goes beyond the correct way to write or speak about a subject. Throughout my full-time career I have produced newsletters, news releases, fundraising pieces, website content and a commemorative book that was published commercially.

I have a great deal of enthusiasm, patience and skill to help young people excel in their subject matter. I am eager to share that with anyone who wants to grow and develop academically and personally.
