Comparative Literature graduate with 4 years of experience offering academic writing lessons in San Francisco

Methodology

My teaching philosophy is rooted in the belief that language is empowering and international, and that writing is an important means of self-expression that can help build understanding across cultural differences. I teach with the aim that my students will experience creativity and pride as a part of the writing process. Using a project-based approach, students are allowed ownership over their writing process, and this strengthens their ability to express themselves clearly and in their own voice.

Background

I am a teacher with an academic background in writing and world literature. I have taught and tutored over 115 students on the writing process, grammar, and reading skills. I have also led over 30 interactive writing workshops lasting 45 and 60-minutes on resumes, cover letters, and research papers in order to prepare students for job applications and academic writing. In addition, I co-taught 3 business communications courses in order to foster the acquisition of discipline-specific writing expectations and conventions for students.
