About Donald

"I hate writing!" This is not an uncommon sentiment, even if it is not stated out loud. As a writer and a writing teacher of 25 years, I know why so many have this feeling. There is often a disconnect between what people want to write or say and what teachers and editors expect. I can help bridge this gap. I know what teachers, professors, editors, and readers want. I have worked with learners of all ages, at all levels, in a variety of settings, including classrooms, hospitals, libraries, living rooms, boardrooms, and even cyberspace. I can help guide any struggling writer and help him or her see improvement and gain confidence, and maybe wind up saying "I love what I wrote!" Please note that I work only with learners who are in high school or college, or who are adults. "I hate writing!" This is not an uncommon sentiment, even if it is not stated out loud.

Outstanding Tutor

I started my first semester of graduate school excited and ready for the challenge, but I quickly discovered that my writing skills were not at a graduate level. I utilized the college writing center but did not feel totally satisfied with the results. My grades were improving, but I always felt pressed for time with writing center tutors. So, I returned to the service that so faithfully serviced
