About Darrell

I have been a teacher of English at Ivy Tech Community College since 2010 and a writing tutor there since 2013. Through my instruction, students of various nationalities learn the mechanics of writing (grammar, punctuation, and spelling) as well as critical thinking skills, such as how to write a thesis statement, how to organize an essay, how to capture the interest of the reader, and the difference between writing to inform and writing to persuade.

I have spent decades as a writer and editor with experience on a monthly magazine, a daily news service, a daily newspaper, and an insurance company marketing department. I have also taught adult Bible study classes in several churches.

In addition to imparting knowledge, I have a passion for encouraging students and helping them to succeed. My commitment to high standards and an informal atmosphere will make our tutoring sessions enjoyable and productive for both of us.

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.

Bible Studies

I have been an adult Bible study teacher in several churches, and I currently teach an adult class at a Nazarene church in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

English

I was an editor and writer on several publications and news services for decades. Since 2010, I have taught and tutored students at Ivy Tech Community College in writing in a variety of subjects. These have included students of ages from 18 to 80 and many who have a native language other than English. I enjoy helping and encouraging students to develop their writing skills so that they can enjoy writing.

ESL/ESOL

I have helped ESL students at Ivy Tech Community College since 2010. I am in the process of completing requirements for a TESOL (teaching English to speakers of other languages) certificate

Reading

I usually tutor students in writing, but I have tutored a first-grade boy in reading. I have been a teacher of English at Ivy Tech Community College since 2010 and a writing tutor there since 2013. Through my instruction, students of various nationalities learn the mechanics of writing (grammar, punctuation, and spelling) as well as critical thinking skills, such as how to write a thesis statement, how to organize an essay, how to capture the interest of the reader, and the difference between writing to inform and writing to persuade.

Writing

I have been a writing instructor at Ivy Tech Community College since 2010 and have been a writing tutor there since 2013. I help students with essays in a variety of subjects, including English, philosophy, psychology, and sociology. I have also been a professional writer and editor for decades.
