About Steve

Dear Students,
I feel confident that I can help anyone become a better writer. With my background as an English teacher and copywriter, writing always has been a part of my professional life.

Right now, I am teaching online English Composition classes at a local community college. This experience has demonstrated that with the help of organizations like WyzAnt.

I earned a Master's degree in English and have 20 years experience as an English teacher. My undergrad work was in Special Education.

For 10 years, I worked outside of teaching as an advertising copywriter. I wrote TV and print ads for Ford Motor Company and Domino's Pizza. People may remember the Domino's TV commercials that playfully warned pizza eaters to "Avoid the Noid." I wrote several of those spots, and I am very proud to have been part of that creative team.

I have written brochures, annual reports, and product catalogs, and I was a ghost writer for a company executive.

At one point, I held a position as Learning Center Coordinator. It was my job to arrange tutoring for all students at a local college.

Let's work together on your next challenge! I can help you get the results you want.

Sincerely,
Steve

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.

ACT English

I have a graduate degree in English and 10 years of teaching experience in college English classes.

College Counseling

In my previous position for 7 years as Learning Center Coordinator at a local private college, the International Academy of Design and Tech, I advised students about their potential for success in school, and I was the ADA/504 Coordinator, with responsible for arranging accommodations for learning disabled students. I was the administrator of Accuplacer, the placement test for all incoming students. As a faculty member, I taught freshmen in a class called College Success.

More recently, I have been teaching online classes in Developmental English and English Composition at Wayne County Community College.

English

As a tutor, I provide support and assistance to individuals age 11 and up in any application of the English language.

I have been a certified teacher in Michigan for 29 years.

Grammar

I have had experience of 20+ years as an English teacher and proofreader.

Proofreading

I am a certified English teacher with experience in proofreading texts written by people of all ages.

I can help you in these areas: spelling and style are correct and consistent; page numbers, headings and captions are correct;
photos and illustrations are correctly captioned; your text matches your ideas accurately.

Writing

I have taught English and writing for over 20 years. My personal experience includes 10 years as an advertising copywriter. I look forward to helping you or your student.
