Writer/journalist tutors high school,college and university students in Calgary at their homes in English, writing and grammar.

Methodology

Simplify grammar and use questions instead of abstract explanations to become proficient in its use. One on one instruction allows students to progress at their own speed. As a professional writer/journalist writing instruction is assisted by my experience. An easy method to teach grammar was accomplished by simplifying the process, using questions instead of explanations wherever possible. Finding an easy metod to teach grammar was developed since learning it in school was confusing, to say the least.

Background

Senior level journalist with 30 years experience between print and broadcast journalism. Writing credits include trade publications such as Design Engineering and Canadian Machinery and Metalworking, magazines and newspaper. Possess BA and journalism diploma. Business writing includes annual reports, press releases, fact sheets and brief biographies.
