University of Las Vegas Nevada (English)
Antioch Univeristy (Master's)
I have been tutoring on a fairly consistent basis since 2000. I was a Senior Academic Advisor at UNLV for five years, where I also tutored selective students--those who struggled with writing papers and were, nonetheless, determined to graduate with strong grades. I found working one-to-one with students more rewarding than teaching in a classroom, which I did in an adjunct situation. I am introverted, a bookworm, you could say, and feel more at ease teaching online, as I do for Southern New Hampshire University. In short, I like tutoring more than any other type of teaching. It is quiet, focused, and permits, if necessary, extended time. I worked, oddly enough given my background, in international commerce for an aerospace company for about six years, and was exceedingly valued for my communication, analytical, interpretive, and empathic skills. I also had the chance to see much of Europe on the company's dollar.
On a more personal level, my wife and I moved from Los Angeles to Cincinnati at the end of 2014, a year after I completed my Master of Fine Arts at Antioch West. While attending graduate school, I also worked for the university in several capacities, the primary one being a part-time tutor. Currently, my wife works at the University of Cincinnati; I am trying to build a good amount of students to tutor in addition to teaching online. I also have a large number of published works, and a book forthcoming. I obviously enjoy reading, these days mainly history and philosophy, and playing classical guitar, which I took up as a teen. For relaxing, at which I am unskilled, I like to play tennis, though my knees no longer take orders from the brain; and I like to watch goofy movies with my younger brothers and my wife and her friends. My youngest brother, a chemistry graduate who has tutored via WyzAnt, and I like to enrage everyone by making fun of the movie, creating alternative dialogue, plots, and swearing that certain actors are CG creations.
I am a professional writer, which is to say I have worked professionally as a copy-editor, proofreader, ghost writer, a tutor for ESL students, and for students across all the disciplines typically under the colleges of Humanities or Liberal Arts; but have tutored students from business schools, the sciences, the engineering departments. A well constructed paper does not perforce demand that I know any given discipline. I know how to write; and I know to teach writing. Please feel free to contact me should you have any initial questions or specific academic concerns. It is paramount to spend your money and time wisely, with an experienced, highly qualified tutor. I respond quickly.

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.
