About Colten


Bio

I am an expert in effective written communication. My approach to tutoring writers relies heavily on the idea of why our written language works the way it does. "That's just the way it is" explanations simply don't cut it.

I am an expert in effective written communication. My approach to tutoring writers relies heavily on the idea of why our written language works the way it does. "That's just the way it is" explanations simply don't cut it.

Students who understand why we write the way we do will invariably become more effective and independent writers, and many will begin to enjoy the process and take real pride in their work. These skills are transferable to just about any career or field of study.

My training in English rests firmly on a foundation of professional composition, classical and contemporary rhetoric, and writing with the purpose of clearly communicating an idea.

I have published the work of more than a dozen colleagues as editor-in-chief of two undergraduate journals, and I have had my own work published on six separate occasions.

I have successfully tested on the ASVAB (96th percentile) and the LSAT (81st percentile).

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments. I'll be happy to provide any additional information.
