Novel writer with Bachelor's in English gives homework help and lessons in creative writing and literature to students of any age

Methodology

I am a writer who loves to teach others my craft. I also am well able to assist with homework assignment completion, literature interpretation or understanding, and much more.

I received my Bachelor Degree in English (Communications emphasis) from Lemoyne College in Syracuse, NY. There, I received a well-rounded education emphasizing literature, philosophy, speech, and composition.

When teaching, I prefer to ask some preliminary questions to determine a student's level of learning. I will then determine my course of action to help the student. I always welcome questions and will work with a student until he or she is confident with the results.

Background

I am just beginning to give lessons, but I have had over 20 years of customer service experience that required me to teach customers on various issues. During that time, I've successfully helped many thousands of customers understand matters they were previously confused by.
