In high school, my English teacher predicted that I would flunk out of college because I was such a poor writer. Well, I felt encouraged to improve. And I did. I graduated near the top of my class, with much praise for my undergraduate thesis that was selected to be placed in the Harvard archives. In the process, I became aware that the way most people teach writing makes it harder -- not easier. In recent years, I've helped people who didn't think they could write to create works that are viewed as outstanding by everyone who reads them. Whether the problem is finding a topic, getting organized, putting the words down, or straightening out a draft, I can make it much simpler and more fun. Most of my students advance two grade levels within three months. While I can't promise that all students will, that will be my goal.
