Professional writer and copy editor will share expertise gained from a lifetime of experience—online tutor only.

Methodology

I teach grammar by the book, incorporating both CMS and APS styles, but we have fun learning the "why" of each rule from a practical and historical point of view. Students are encouraged to practice the grammar in creative or expository writing. My lessons are lively and interesting, but dedicated to perfecting the student's command of English grammar.

Background

I am a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill with a degree in Communications. I began as a teacher of English grammar, creative writing and literature to grades 7 through 12, then went into television as a copywriter. After a varied career as a writer, I ended my salaried work as senior writer and editor for the Communications Department of a Fortune 300 company, acting also as a tutor to the other novice writers in the department. Five years ago, I left my corporate job to write full-time. I have published 3 books since and have two more in process. I also publish narrative histories in newspapers and magazines.
