About Me

Experience Summary

Professional journalist and magazine writer with experience writing for numerous national publications and large newspapers, including US News & World Report, The Miami Herald and the Columbia Journalism Review. I've also served as the editor of local newspapers in Florida and New York. Clear, concise writing is my life's work. I have experience with several elementary reading programs, including intensive phonics programs like the Riggs Institute's 'Writing and Spelling Road to Reading and Thinking' that can be used to help students who are not reading at grade level.

Teaching Style

I start with high expectations for the student, and believe in the importance of explaining to the student what is to be accomplished during the lesson. We then proceed logically through the lesson, taking the student from his level to a much higher level of skill and understanding over a short period of time.

My Hobbies

Reading -- non-fiction and classic literature.
