About Mark

I believe that with the right tutor or coach, everyone is capable of producing professional, polished writing, whether it is a school homework assignment, a college paper, or a work project. All writing assignments, small and large, deserve to be grammatically correct, well-structured, and easy to read. While tutoring and coaching others has always been a key component of my professional life, I supplemented this with volunteer work by tutoring foreign-language students and adults under a library-sponsored Literacy for Life program. I also taught at a local community college, where I established the habit of arriving early and leaving late so that I could maximize time spent with conscientious students. Every student I tutor will be treated as an individual with unique goals and requirements, and I will measure my success by how well I satisfy those goals and requirements.

For the last 25 years, the most important part of my job was writing, reviewing, and editing a variety of material including formal reports for boards of directors, effective communications for a range of corporate audiences, and many written products related to general business issues. Other writing accomplishments include speech writing for executives and several dozen published articles in professional publications. Outside my formal job, I helped numerous people with writing/editing tasks: everything from resumes, articles for publication, essays for job applications or applications for college and medical schools, draft novel manuscripts, and many other unique writing assignments. I have also served as Feedback Writer/Editor for the Texas Award for Performance Excellence, and was recognized for excellence in writing.

I can help to improve your writing, grammar, and vocabulary skills. I am a patient tutor, committed to building student confidence and success in writing. I have a very flexible schedule with immediate availability.

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.

Writing

For over 30 years, I have reviewed/edited the work of a team of writers to produce reports, papers, and presentations of the highest standards. I have also been a Feedback Writer/Editor for the Texas Award for Performance Excellence.
