EducationMaster of Science in Writing and Publishing from Portland State University. Bachelor of Science in Arts and Letters from Portland State University. Associate Arts Program at Lane Community College.
ExperienceI have worked as a tutor throughout my studies and since. Through that experience I have learned how to help people develop the voice, confidence, and structure needed to accomplish whatever goals or grades they desire. I want to continue tutoring because it is inspiring to be involved in the learning process.
HobbiesIn Graduate school I worked as writer and editor at a university newspaper where my columns became regular features. At the same time I worked as student intern at the university trade press where I was active in the acquisition, editing, design, and marketing of several notable publications. As a graduate senior I was published in several journals and was the winner of an annual student writing contest. Since graduating I have worked as tutor, editor, and online liaison between local writers and small press publishers. I am currently working on several writing projects, some of novel length and near completion.

Was so happy to find Jay on University Tutor! He was my tutor a couple years ago when I was a new student and helped so much, I sought him out again ( :
Jay was fantastic! He responded to my message quickly and was willing to be flexible with scheduling. And my grades are already improving. I expected him to proofread and suggest some minor tweaks but he did so much more for me. He had brilliant ideas for expansion that I had completely missed and he did it in such a way that I left there inspired to do more writing. I will definitely be hiring him again.
