Retired businessman and educator makes literacy and writing fun for achieving goals.

Methodology

A teacher of writing and literacy needs to know each student's competencies. I use the Socratic approach, encouraging both answers and questions. The student's age, literacy level, education, occupation and goals determine the beginning. Depending on class size and duration, concepts involving structure, theme, planning, plot, character development, designing your essay. Teaching points would be brief. Practice exercises using basic language tools would create the dynamics for skill development.

Background

I am a graduate of University of Guelph, have been certified as a behavior modification coach.
I owned and operated Patrick Legal Services, a legal and counseling firm. I delivered Cognitive Skills programs. Closing that busnesss, I then operated Keep it Simple Coffee's special events mobile trailer for seven years. I am retired and write daily. I regularly critique, proof-read, suggest revisions, etc to a number of other writers.
