I was a peer writing tutor back in the 1990s when it was still called the English Composition Board.

In that role, I mostly covered campaigns and elections, with a special emphasis on preparing for presidential debates and Election Nights. Now, I’m back in Ann Arbor as the Howard R.

My experience at Sweetland/ECB has been extremely helpful in working with students to make the most impact with their writing. Outside of the classroom, I’m also the host of a journalism-themed radio talk show on WCBN-FM called The J Word.
