I grew up in a family of writers and received my degree in English Literature from Arizona State University.

Methodology

My teaching approach is to explain in a very plain fashion what needs to be done to achieve results. I do not like jargon, and I do not like ideas that work in theory by not in practice. I believe the majority of today's articles are full of ineffective methods.

Background

My forte is grammar. My specialty involves spotting errors in writing samples that others may overlook. I believe the English language has a rigid set of rules that must be followed, or the entire piece of writing is rendered useless. I do not appreciate the writing style of William Faulkner.
