Duke University English grad wants to help your kids! I love books, movies, and — most importantly — discussing, analyzing, and writing about books and movies. I will help your child not only approach

Methodology

I will approach students individually, because everyone is different. The unique thing I bring to the table is my *own* enthusiasm, which has been described by others as “infectious”. In other words, the best thing that I do as a teacher/tutor is to instill in the student an excitement for doing these things themselves — if you can get the student to *love* the reading & analysis of works of literature, then the game is half-won already. They will no longer view their schoolwork as “work” but as an activity to look forward to, because it helps them understand themselves and the world they live in.

Background

I studied English at Duke from 1990-1994, when their English Department was at the top of its game. My concentration was in “Postcolonial Literature & Film” — and the focus of most of my work was diversity. Diversity of cultures and cultural productions; diversity of approaches & methodologies; and diversity of interpretation. I am ideally suited to help high school students evaluate works from unique and interesting perspectives, thus allowing them to get a leg up on preparing for the academic rigors of college.
