Patient and skillful tutor in writing, grammar and literature

I taught writing at a liberal arts college for forty years, much of it in one-on-one sessions with students in the senior year; and have been tutoring students from twelfth grade to graduate school for two years. My approach is to assess the student's needs and to work out an individual plan to help his or her writing, from the core elements of grammar to the more complex matters of organization and style. I love to learn and to help others learn, a pleasure I had for nearly forty years as a college instructor in writing and literature at The College of Wooster in Ohio. Although I taught man [more]

After high school I attended the University of Oregon for a B.A. in Economics, with a minor in Mathematics, and a GPA of 3.67. In tutoring, I first focus on understanding exactly what a student is having trouble with, then use a ... [more]

For nine months, I worked as a tutor at the MTSU Writing Center. My goal as a tutor is to help learners succeed by useful strategies for reading and writing.
