About Gene

I'm a parent of three grown children, all of whom have been or are teaching now -- and I'm one of the ones who helped them with their homework! I've made a living as a video writer and producer, so I know the English language, proper grammar and the visual arts. I'm a pretty voracious reader, so I'm familiar with much of the literature that young students will encounter, and probably a lot more besides. Additionally, I've been a choral musician most of my life, have composed quite a few choral pieces that have been performed by choirs in the area, and I'm pretty knowledgeable about music theory.

Although, I've never made my living as a teacher, I've often acted as a mentor for young and inexperienced workers in my field, and they all have told me I'm a good one-on-one teacher, with a logical approach to imparting knowledge. In those cases, I've tended to use a question-and-answer approach to encourage critical thinking to help the student think through the subject matter on his or her own. In those cases, I've organized the subject matter in logical steps, making sure the student has mastered each step along the way. I'd love to help any young student in the same way.

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.

English

For years, I've written video scripts for corporate and government clients. I've also written web articles and even a couple of musical performance reviews for the Richmond Times-Dispatch. I'm well versed in English grammar, usage, and vocabulary.

QuickBooks

I have used Quickbooks for nearly six years in running my freelance business, and I'm quite familiar by now with how it's set up and how it works. I'm pretty computer-savvy as well.

Vocabulary

Experienced writer and voracious reader with great vocabulary

Writing

For years, I've written video scripts for corporate and government clients. I've also written web articles and even a couple of musical performance reviews for the Richmond Times-Dispatch. For two weeks every year, I help train Army journalists to write and produce television news stories. I'm well versed in English grammar, usage, and vocabulary. I know how to research subject matter, organize ideas, and write with style and substance.
