Experienced Business English and IELTS Teacher

While engaging in business, I've written many policies, procedures, presentations, letters, emails, etc. In school, I wrote many an essay. My Film and Society professor asked to use an essay I wrote about the movie, Armageddon" as an example for future classes. I received very good grades in English Literature and was even asked to be a tutor in the Writing Department at the college. What's more, I wrote a short story that was published. I've enjoyed creating word pictures for a very long time, and I enjoy helping others with whatever their writing needs might be. [more]
