My professional experience has combined a long career in journalism along with several years of teaching at many levels, from middle and high school to college and adults. I have taught social studies, business courses, word processing and college journalism. I have been widely published in more than a dozen newspapers and several magazines and have written on a wide range of subjects, including government, health, education, social services, business, arts and entertainment. Thus, I have a broad knowledge of many subjects.
As a teacher, I stress hands-on learning, applying knowledge to real-life experience. I also was an adviser for student newspapers and took my students on field trips to introduce them to veteran journalists as well as opportunities to put their knowledge to use in the real world.

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.
I am a lifelong journalist, having written for numerous publications as well as taught journalism to college students for more than 7 years.
