Creative and passionate teacher committed to helping students become successful, confident writers and critical thinkers.

Methodology

I've taught college level and high school English. My basic philosophy is that all writing is an argument whether it is a personal narration or a research essay using multiple sources. All writing is creative and I teach students how to writing informative writing using telling facts that give the reader pleasure.

Background

I have a M.A. in English literature. I've taught and tutored invention, argumentative writing and general writing composition for many years.
I've been teaching for 20+ years. I've tutored over 100 students individually. I've taught many hundreds of students in college classrooms over the years.
