I hold a bachelor's degree in English and a master's degree in journalism.

In addition I taught social studies and literature where I helped to hone students' critical thinking and reasoning skills.

I am a newspaper publisher and have a great love for the written word. I taught GED preparation for 8 years in the Detroit Public Schools' Adult Education program, and was very successful in teaching grammar while helping students to master essay writing. I hold a bachelor's degree in English and a master's degree in journalism.

In addition I taught social studies and literature where I helped to hone students' critical thinking and reasoning skills.
At heart, I am a grammarian who is sometimes disheartened by those that find English grammar hard or unimportant. I'd love to tutor in the language arts and help make English grammar and composition fun and easy!

Publisher/editor of quarterly publication.
Degrees in English and journalism

Most of us don't remember grammar rules or the mechanics of writing. Even those of us that are considered good writers would be hard pressed to tell you why they write well. My approach is to first review basic grammar and writing mechanics, and then to apply that learning to your writing. It works.......once you know the rules. Call me.
