About Frank


Bio

I have been teaching English composition and journalism for 11 years at a university in Erie, Pa., and prior to that I worked for 30 years as a journalist at several newspapers in Northern California. I take my role as a writing teacher very seriously and derive great satisfaction from helping my students improve as writers and gain self-confidence that carries over into other aspects of their lives. I provide detailed feedback on all writing assignments and take time to review all papers...

I have been teaching English composition and journalism for 11 years at a university in Erie, Pa., and prior to that I worked for 30 years as a journalist at several newspapers in Northern California. I take my role as a writing teacher very seriously and derive great satisfaction from helping my students improve as writers and gain self-confidence that carries over into other aspects of their lives. I provide detailed feedback on all writing assignments and take time to review all papers with students. I work hard, and I expect my students to work just as hard.

I have years of experience as a professional writer and teacher and I am particularly well-schooled in the areas of grammar, proofreading, and word usage.

I am in Cranberry Fridays through Sundays and would be more than willing to meet and work with you to polish your writing skills.

Very knowledgeable & patient tutor.

Frank was able to easily work with my daughter so that she understood how to improve her writing skills. I am already seeing differences in how she approaches her writing as well as her finished work. Also, since he has worked "in the field," she found his instruction especially relevant.
