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.

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.
I consider myself a writing mechanic, and I use a practical approach to teaching. I will not waste your time talking about tangential aspects of writing. I will ask you to submit samples of your writing, and I will critique them for you, based on my years of professional and teaching experience.
