My emphasis is on a dialogue-driven, genre-sensitive, and media-enriched introduction to writing. This establishes a common and confident ground for inspirational English learning. The goal is to address critical, daunting issues that often derail students’ track towards the acquisition of a distinctive, impressive writing style.
I have studied English, directly, through my degree in the field and through continued training at the graduate and doctorate levels. I've taught several sections of first-year composition at a university. I have written short stories and poetry in formal environments and for presentation. I have facilitated learning for diverse age levels, as children, adolescents, adults, and seniors.
For example, I use a customized curriculum addressing frequently requested topics, as creativity, personal style, grammar, punctuation, diction, syntax, and idea-generation. Students have favorably reviewed my unique usage of related multimedia tools, as audio ...

I enjoyed the lesson very much, he started out teaching things that made sense so that I would learn faster than the lessons I have previously taken and not done well with.
I'm looking forward to the next lesson and am practicing what we went over in class.

Errol G. is very patient and accommodating when working with younger students.
David Howland
Erol calmly and clearly answered all my Publisher questions. He also was kind enough to give me "extra" information about my computer system and how I might upgrade it. Erol is a valuable resource (and person :) ) and I will be using him again in the future.

I'm sorry, I cannot handle this Instructor for my children. She wasn't me but she's not quite the people person I expected. Her personality is not a good match for a high school tutor. Unfortunately her English is not good enough. Her accent is entirely too strong. Also she does not know enough Geometry to help my kids.

It was my daughter's first contact with professional acting.
She has been talking about being an actress for quite a while now, so we decided to let her take a few lessons to see if she likes it.
Ollie was really comprehensive of our needs and made us see the big picture of that world... just what we needed, to start walking into that direction on the right path.
My daughter had a wonderful time with Ollie.
Kristyl N.
I booked 4 acting sessions with Ms. Ollie for my daughter. Ms. Ollie did a phenomenal job starting from scratch, coaching my daughter for her up coming audition. My daughter had no acting experience, she was shy, and soft spoken but in just 4 short days, Ms. Ollie turned her into a confident, outspoken young actress. My daughter nailed her audition thanks to Ollie!! I will highly recommend her as your acting coach.
Leana T.
Great person to work with! Cheerful. Listens to what you have to say. Ready to help you improve.
