Literature and languages Ph.D. with 20 years of college and K-12 experience gives lessons in writing, literature, and test prep.

Methodology

My approach seeks to enhance student abilities, confidence, and knowledge through relevant and interesting readings and writings that enhance critical thinking skills. I always search for a balance between between nurturing student success and maintaining academic rigor. For me, the learning environment should primarily be a place in which students are given the opportunity to try out new skills and investigate new perspectives in an atmosphere of acceptance, encouragement, and cooperation.

Background

I have advanced degrees in English, world literature, and languages. I have taught hundreds of students at the college level in English Composition, Literature, and the Humanities and have tutored dozens of other students at the K-12 level. My background combines 20 years of college-level teaching in numerous subjects with my personal accomplishments in having published 5 academic articles in prestigious journals and presenting academic papers at several dozen scholarly conferences in North America and Europe.
