Playwright/professional writer with 7 years of English teaching experience in greater Seattle

Methodology

I am clear. That is most of why students seek me out. I don't tell them what to think but guide them through the material itself so that they can learn through question and answer. I am not critical but am also insistent on genuine learning.

Background

I have a Master's degree in English and seven years of experience teaching college freshman composition, remedial English, sophomore English and American literature and dramatic literature. I was so popular my classes routinely filled up on the first day of early registration.I have also taught creative writing in middle school and high school programs and creative dramatics in elementary school.
