About Clayton

I am currently teaching at Chattanooga State and UTC, and I have over 10 years experience teaching and tutoring English, learning support writing, literature, and creative writing; over 10 years experience tutoring students in music (guitar, mandolin, songwriting, theory, and composition). I am a great writing teacher--this I promise you. Most of my experience tutoring and teaching has been on the college level, yet I am comfortable with students ages 12 to 60. I am a dynamic and creative individual, and have worked with students with special needs. I specialize in working with students with Attention Deficit Disorder, and am highly proficient in tutoring students learning English as a second language. I got my Bachelor's of English (B.A.) from the University of Georgia, and Master's of Fine Arts (M.F.A) in English and creative writing from Georgia State University. I am good at motivating students, and cater to each based on their needs. Finally, I am a published author and poet.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

ACT English

I have had many workshops and seminars on this subject. I also taught as an ACT Coach. My students all increased their scores exceeded their targets.

English

I have been a college professor for the last 10 years. I am currently teaching at Chattanooga State, and am glad to be back in the area. Although creative writing is my specialty, I can tutor you in learning support writing, English composition, literature, etc. Just let me know, and I will accommodate you.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught Learning Support English in urban environments (such as Atlanta). There were also plenty of non-native English speakers at Shorter University. I have learned to communicate and teach English to non-speakers as a result of sheer determination and necessity.

Guitar

I have been a guitar player since I was 10 years old. I taught at several private music schools since I was 18. I have had much formal training and was accepted into University graduate school for jazz improvisation but turned down the appointment for a teaching position at a college.
