Lesson Details

Writing

Levels Taught:
Elementary, Middle School, High School, College
You don't have to be a natural writer to excel in writing. There are a set of steps to follow to unlock good writing ability and develop your writing muscles. As a professional writer/editor of more than 20 years I can teach you the basic steps to follow, along with simple strategies you can use to execute any writing project. I will also show you why "real writing" is in the rewriting stage and ways to avoid common pitfalls. For younger writers, I will provide similar tips in a digestible way. I will also offer "bonus" insider tips on perfecting writing structure and why to never undertake any writing project without a basic outline.

Everyone can write. You don't have to be a natural-born "writer" to develop strong writing muscles. I have trained young students and professionals to write like a professional, making every word count. My experience comes over more than two decades working as a professional writer, editor, and content provider for B2B industry vertical publications, mainstream pubs and websites. I specialize in strengthening the written word across a variety of topical areas and mediums, and have held management positions in business writing, healthcare/medical writing and finance writing for the last 13 years.

I currently ghost write for doctors discussing clinical products offered by national brands (e.g., Bausch + Lomb, Akorn, MacuHealth, etc.) in my post managing special writing projects.

I can help improve the writing of young academics and college-age students by offering them powerful tools to organize basic through complex writing tasks, so they are able to successfully convey themes/messages in a compelling way. In the process, these advancing writing skills will develop critical thinking abilities, project management aptitude and high-level communication capabilities in young people, which will serve them in all areas of life.

I have degrees in English writing and print journalism, and have spent my entire career in writing/communications fields. Thank you for the opportunity to work with you or your student. I consider it an honor!
