Online Writing Teacher

I have extensive experience helping students develop effective writing and library research skills, including implementation of APA Style. I hold a Doctorate in Educational Leadership and Curriculum and Instruction. The focus of my dissertation was the impact of education on Latino students from a representative bureaucracy perspective. The retrospective study centered on determining to what extent Latino representation in governance influence Latino students’ graduation rates in public high school in two counties in New York. My writing and research interests include teachers-as-researchers, examining ethnic identity, biculturalism, development of children of color, social and cultural theory, Latino and Afro-Latino studies, race and ethnicity (with a focus on Afro-descendants in and from Latin America), urban sociology, education policy, educational leadership, Culturally-Responsive Teaching, and transition to college initiatives.

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 ...

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 have had several German lessons with Erol and I definitely notice a difference in understanding sentence structures and with my accent improving.
