About Walteer

I have worked as a journalist, advertising copywriter, public relations agent, and teacher. I taught English Composition and Literature at the University of Akron from 1972 - 1980, part time while working in journalism and advertising. I retired in 2010 and again taught as an adjunct at University of Akron, Akron Institute and Stark State College.

I believe that writing well enough to communicate one's ideas is critical in today's world. I spent the last ten years of my working life developing training programs and writing consulting reports for a Software Development / Business Consulting Firm. I noted the best technology workers were able to clearly explain their ideas both verbally and in writing.
A student's best writing will be on subjects in which they have interests or in which they believe.
Good writing comes from the individuals beliefs, ideas and interests.

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 taught English Composition (writing), Rhetoric (Research and essay development), Business Communications and writing for the media.
Also, I have had experience as a journalist, advertising copy writer and public relations specialist.

ACT Reading

I have taught English Grammar and Composition and passed the ACT test administered by WyzAnt.

English

My career included writing for a university news bureau, several magazines, advertising agency copy writing, as well as teaching English Composition for 3 colleges, including the University of Akron.

Literature

I have taught composition (writing method), writing for the media and business communications at several colleges, including The University of Akron. I have also worked as a journalist and business writer.

Marketing

I spend 25 years in the advertising business, writing copy, editing film (yes, film in those days) for commercials and writing advertising and marketing plans for clients. I started as a copywriter (also wrote for newspaper and magazines) and moved on to account management, senior executive in a mid sized agency and finally into my own business.

Microsoft Excel

I have used Excel for more than 20 years. As a business owner, I used it to establish important business information: Sales, overhead, purchase costs and many other business functions.
My knowledge is practical and I can show you not only how to use the system but also how to use the help functions that will provide you with a method to become a solid user.
Hope to see you soon.

Reading

I have acquired Wyzant's qualification for reading. I taught three children and four grandchildren to read. I have infrequently worked with adults and college students for whom English was a second language.

SAT Writing

I have a broad background, having taught at the college level, worked in Manufacturing, Education, Advertising and Publishing.
Now retired, I am available most time periods except Sundays or if I am already committed to a project.

Writing

I have taught grammar, composition, writing for the media and rhetoric (writing an argument). My teaching was at freshman and sophomore levels for several colleges.
