About Clyde


Bio

I taught composition and literature at the college level for eleven years, at the high school level for two years. I have had a life long fascination with grammar and with writing. I know more about the sentence, the paragraph, and the structure of whole compositions than you will need to learn. I do not have to make these subjects interesting; they are already interesting, and I have been able over the years to make many students see this.

In tutoring, I take a conversational approach,...

I taught composition and literature at the college level for eleven years, at the high school level for two years. I have had a life long fascination with grammar and with writing. I know more about the sentence, the paragraph, and the structure of whole compositions than you will need to learn. I do not have to make these subjects interesting; they are already interesting, and I have been able over the years to make many students see this.

In tutoring, I take a conversational approach, trying to find the student's current level of knowledge and skill and then trying to raise those levels.

It is learning, not teaching, that is important. I like tutoring because the facilitation of learning is more direct in tutoring than in a classroom. But if you do not want to learn, you will not learn. If you do not want to learn, pass me by.

I have experience in the so called real world as well, as a Realtor and in the fork lift business. My writings have been published in magazines, books and anthologies, and my poetry has been released in record albums and CD's as well.

I have a BA and an MA in English Education. I taught for two years in a high school and ten years at the college level. When I was in high school, a placement test in reading put me at the 100 percentile rank, which is very rare since the tests are designed to sort. More importantly, I have the patience and quality of attention to ascertain a student's level of skill and begin there.

Outstanding knowledge of the English grammar. He is very open-minded.

I couldn't have found anything better than these lessons. He is the personification of the perfect teacher, for he does not do things for you but he gives you tools for you to grasp the concepts by yourself.
