Experienced English Teacher of all levels, both literature and writing, in Reno

Methodology

My approach to teaching is to keep the tone of my classes light and friendly. I see no reason why students should dislike learning English. I try to keep classes upbeat without sacrificing classic learning. I am also comfortable teaching all areas of English, not only those which I have mentioned.

Background

BA in English from University of Minnesota; MA in education from University of Illinois
I have taught: Senior expository writing
Junior American Literature
Shakespeare
Community College Business Writing
Besides teaching, I have worked in industry, writing advertising, and developing both technical and instructional materials for biotech firm.
