About Gary


Bio

Hello Students:

My name is Gary. I have just moved up to the Corvallis, OR area and am offering my services as an English writing tutor.

My philosophy in teaching exposition is to break the skill down into areas of content and grammar, and to evaluate a student's strengths, weaknesses, and growth in those areas. I have taught a variety of students of various ages and cultural backgrounds.

Hello Students:

My name is Gary. I have just moved up to the Corvallis, OR area and am offering my services as an English writing tutor.

My philosophy in teaching exposition is to break the skill down into areas of content and grammar, and to evaluate a student's strengths, weaknesses, and growth in those areas. I have taught a variety of students of various ages and cultural backgrounds.

My first career was as a college-level instructor in composition and business communication. I was Director of the Language Skills Center at State University College in Geneseo, NY. I was hired to create, supervise, and teach classes in the Center, a program to help student writers deficient in basic writing skills. We instituted a peer tutoring program and a freshman essay screening process. The entire program was built on measuring student growth in writing and ensuring that the students would be prepared for ad-hoc essays, research papers, and other writing activities.

Prior to Geneseo, I was an English instructor in the Evening Division of Newbury Jr. College, teaching writing and business communication to service men and women going to night school to earn an Associates Degree.

My teaching career turned into a career as a Developer, Systems Analyst, and Technical Writer in Information Technology. However, even in IT, I was asked to lead documentation and training projects due to my teaching background.

My objective is your success. I hope you will consider me as your tutor.
