Help with All Forms of Literature from Guy Waiting for PhD Approval

Methodology

I am currently awaiting the final approval of my PhD in Contemporary Literature from Aberystwyth University, Wales. I also have an MA in Postmodern Genres (also from Aberystwyth University) and a BA in English and American Literature from the University of South Florida.

Background

I have given several international conferences and have assisted colleagues in writing, editing, and literary theory. I have published both academically and creatively. Recently, I was the keynote speaker in a conference in Costa Rica where I presented in Spanish for close to an hour to over 130 people of mixed academic background.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $20/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $85
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : $165

Details

The rates are negotiable. However, the level of the student does not affect the rate. It is the same for a middle school student being introduced to the Odyssey as it is for a student working on their master's dissertation.
