Writer, Musician, Poet, and Journalist

I have been a member of a poets workshop, who self-published our anthology, for over seven years. We critique and proofread each others work at our monthly meetings. Dave, born in Toronto, Canada, received his music education at the Royal Conservatory of Music. He began putting his poems to music and this led to his migration to California to seek recognition as a songwriter. He played with several music acts in the Bay Area in the 1970s/1980s and composed scores for the theater. Following the muse of poetry and fiction writing, he went to San Francisco State University and earned Creative Wr [more]

Effective English, Writing & Logic Skills

For over 20 years, I have been teaching, training & tutoring in many different forms.

That give-and-take is where true learning really happens, but the great payoff comes when the student gets it ? when the bulb clicks on and the light flashes in their eyes. I also employ a modified EDGE method (Explain-Demonstrate-Guide-Enable), particularly with gr... [more]

Engaging, Challenging, Successful!

My background is English Literature, historic preservation and adventure! I believe that along with all the work that goes into learning, there is a moment where you can realize that you are opening your own doors. That is what I hope to inspire as I tutor. My experience is a less formal tutoring but have helped friends and others who are struggling to understand concepts or were looking for ways to improve their own work with feedback from me. I have a lifetime of travel, a background that... [more]
