« Gary helped me throughout undergraduate school. Working with him was always a pleasure. I received an "A" on every paper I wrote during those four years, and graduated summa cum laude. He helped me so much with my writing. I now have an MBA and am a Director-Product Marketing in the corporate arena. I still use the skills Gary taught me every day. He was an indispensable part of my early academic success. As you'll discover quickly if you work with him: this guy can write! - Jennifer »

My pledge: I will help you build sentences, confidence, and better grades

Methodology

I am a professional writer and former newspaper editor. I also served as director of communications in the corporate arena.

I teach writing and related skills: English, grammar, proofreading, editing, and vocabulary.

My clients include high school, college, and graduate students; people who wish to improve their dexterity with the written word.

We learn to write by rewriting, under the watchful eye of a patient, competent mentor.

I will teach you to write sentences that burn with energy and build to a crescendo. I'll help you put some melody in your writing.

Background

Tutoring is the very essence of being an editor, a position I've held at several Wisconsin daily newspapers.

I've molded dozens of young reporters into respected members of The Fourth Estate.

In addition, I designed the largest weekly newspaper in Wisconsin, a new publication, and presided over all editorial operations.

Gary's resume

I attended the University of Wisconsin, majoring in journalism.

I am a recipient of state, national, and international first-place writing awards in the areas of education, business, politics, law, health care, aviation, religion, mental health, the funeral home industry, features, and editorials.

My teaching method is simple: we will autopsy your work. We will dissect every sentence, repair any damage we find, and resuscitate it.

Together, we will build sentences, confidence, and better grades.

Gary helped me throughout undergraduate school. Working with him was always a pleasure. I received an "A" on every paper I wrote during those four years, and graduated summa cum laude. He helped me so much with my writing.
