Bio

I have a Bachelor's degree in speech Communication which encompasses all aspects of both verbal and nonverbal communication. My minor is in English. While working on my Master's degree I taught public speaking for three years at the college level.

I have a Bachelor's degree in speech Communication which encompasses all aspects of both verbal and nonverbal communication. My minor is in English. While working on my Master's degree I taught public speaking for three years at the college level.

I have a passion for the English language and I believe absolutely that knowing how to speak well in any kind of situation both cultivates self-respect and garners respect from others. I am not referring to the use of "big" words, but more to the correct spelling and proper usage of everyday talk. I have had supervisors and managers in a number of places I've worked who send messages to or post notices for subordinates and these communications have simple words either misspelled or used incorrectly.

As an example: a manager posted a notice at a place of employment pointing out his employees could improve their customer service skills; the last sentence read "we can do better THEN that." Of course, that should have read better THAN that. Unrelated examples of similar mistakes abound on the internet, in the media and in our daily interactions.

Someone will ask "what WAS your name, again?" Well, I respond "my name Still IS ....
Someone will say I had TO much when it is TOO much.

Seemingly simple stuff but of tantamount importance if one expects to be perceived as credible, say in a job interview, for instance. On any given day, all one has to do is listen to hear someone on TV say "this is my friend THAT I've known for years..." This is my friend WHO would be the proper reference.

And, almost the worst of all (which I am positive is also the most familiar) is the reference made to a child's father as my BABY Daddy.

I believe with all my heart these types of errors run needlessly rampant in our culture.
In addition, I have a substantial background in research and writing papers.

Thank you.
