Journalism and fiction writing launched my journey through American society. My post-graduate studies and foreign travel gave me a global perspective. Classroom teaching prepared me as an educator. My tutoring allowed me to teach in what most people feel is one of the most effective learning venues available. I am accomplished in the use of on-line learning and I can help you navigate those murky waters. I draw from years in media research, writing, and production. In fiction writing and literary criticism, I enjoy using workshop methods to polish manuscripts and refine intended meaning. I can help you communicate your own research and your experiences. I will help you advance your verbal skills, writing and your use of appropriate grammar. I believe anyone can master APA, MLA, or any of the ever-changing, widely varied academic and literary styles. You and I can tackle serious research, fiction projects, and even creative non-fiction. I am particularly eager to work with genres of your own creation. I am an actor and speech coach, so believe me when I say: "I can make the mastery of standard American English positively fun and rewarding." I have a solid background in linguistics, and I understand how varied language techniques are designed to suit the writer's purpose while serving the reader's desire for truth and fair attribution. If you need a background check for me, feel free to buy one. I am a certified Private Security Provider through the The State of Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training. My PSID number is 51885 and rest assured, they are pretty thorough with their background checking. I have worked in law enforcement and still hold a certification for Adult CPR and AED.
