A Boston University graduate and fiction writer offering English and Writing tutoring

Methodology

My approach to teaching a student how to analyze literature and write better involves allowing the student the space for creative expression; I never want to critique the student's mind, for that is their power, but rather guide them to better methods of using their unique thought processes.

Background

I am a writer and prospective Masters of Fine Arts student seeking to help high school and college students meet their academic goals. I have experience tutoring English in both an individual and group setting. I develop my teaching method according to students' skill sets and goals.
