College Street Reading and Writing Academy for motivated teens and ambitious adults

Methodology

I have an MFA in writing and a minor in theater. As a former major executive, I know the importance of business writing. I can work with any writing ability level as long as my student is motivated. I understand students and adults who hate to write as long as they understand the importance of writing.

Background

I have had teaching experience at middle and high school levels and as a college professor. I have also taught at a prestigious private school. I have also taught at the developmental or learning support level. I have tutored at colleges and universities. I have 27 years business experience, mainly in the entertainment industry. Ten of those were as a senior executive. My intent is to cover the basics of writing a good essay, business letter, or report. I am less experienced with creative writing, although I know a lot about it. I have been a journalist and I continue to write. I have taught many Comp I and Comp II classes as well as Humanities, Ancient Literature, and African American Literature. I have also taught Introduction to Theater. Motivated students, whatever their level, do well in my courses and enthusiastically recommend me. Other students do exactly opposite.
