About Charles

Dear Future Client,

My name is Byron. I'm a husband, father of two, and a writer by profession. To give you a little background on my qualifications to tutor Writing and Grammar, my writing experience spans over twenty years in both the literary and technical writing fields. My first fiction novel was published by Written World Communications in 2012, and is now being reviewed for possible adaptation to film. My second novel is represented by the D4EO Literary Agency for future publication. I've published several short works in commercial and academic venues, and I’m currently working on my third novel of fiction. I'm also contracted as an associate editor for ALVA Press in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. On the technical side, I've spent over twenty-five years in a corporate/technical capacity, and bring the discipline and structure of that environment to my tutoring methods. I hold a degree with the University of Maryland, and a certification in Sixth Sigma Green Belt with Villanova University.

From a literary perspective, my tutoring qualifications encompass subjects such as editing (line, copy, developmental, proofreading), general grammar, writing techniques(essay, short form, long form, fiction, non-fiction), manuscript styles (CMS, MLA, APA), literary history (1800-present), reading (English), as well as Microsoft Word usage and computer fundamentals. From a business perspective, I'm qualified in written personnel reviews, quarterly reports, MS PowerPoint presentations, technical writing, and customer briefings/de-briefings.

My first step in tutoring a client is understanding their needs and goals so we can lay out a logical plan to obtain them successfully. I do not believe in teaching by pressure or unpleasantness, but by finding each student’s method of learning and engaging it in a positive way. I guarantee professional, efficient and timely results.

Thank you for your consideration.

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.

General Computer

I spent over 23 years in the defense industry. Computers, networking, and application testing were my main focus. I've trained and mentored dozens of professionals throughout my career.

Grammar

A basic key to becoming proficient and successful in any language is learning the proper grammar of that language. Through years of writing and working with dozens of professional editors, I've fine-tuned my English grammar skills. As a writer, grammar is vitality important to me. I can show you the proper use of grammar, which can open doors for you throughout your lifetime.

Microsoft Word

I've been using word processing software since 1989. Before that, I took courses in Basic programming language and MS DOS. Between personal and business use, I've used word processing for everything from manuscripts, forms, business reports, and just about everything in between, to include college papers. If you need to become proficient in MS Word, I can show you the basics, as well as advanced features such as Track Changes, Collaboration, and Script Editor.

Reading

A good reader makes a good writer. Reading can be mastered by understanding word inflection, sentence structure, sentence flow, and the basic elements of proper grammar. That said, writing is my business and comprehensive reading is an intricate part of writing success. I believe I can successfully improve your reading skills.
