Let me know if you're interested in tutorials. I expect that few students will be interested as most colleges offer some form of free tutoring. Also, if I do accept students as a special type of client, I'm afraid I cannot treat you as professionals. I will do what I can to point out problem areas. There are number of things I may or may not do, in terms of pointing out mistakes and giving you corrected samples. On the one hand I want to help you as much as possible, but we must stay within ethical guidelines. I've been doing this for 25 years, so it shouldn't be too hard. But I want you to become literate, not just appear literate. I might point to a problem area, give you some examples of standard text, and perhaps discuss some of the principles involved. Keep in mind that some rules for standard English are completely arbitrary. Also, if you give me some idea of the type of structure your teacher is looking for, I may be able to give you some rhetorical advice. If you think you have writer's block, I'm sure I can cure you of that. We'll try a number of prescriptions. Finally, if you're faced with a particularly challenging essay, I think I can assure you that if you enlist my help you won't be disappointed. This is all contingent, of course, on whether I decide to accept students. Note: If you want me to give sufficient thought to your paper in under an hour, please keep it to about 350 words.
