Retired English professor for hire: 25 years of college English teaching experience

Methodology

I offer tutoring in English for college students, for composition and literature study, as well as tutoring for creative writers at levels, especially in poetry writing. I use Socratic dialogue and direct instruction, and all my students learn close reading.

Background

I have been teaching and tutoring since 1990. I have taught hundreds of students. My students have achieved both undergraduate degrees and graduate degrees, and writers I have taught have been published in serious literary magazines and other places.

Rates

Rate for a 1-hour lesson. : $60/h

Details

$60 per hour is the basic rate I make when teaching as an adjunct teacher at a local community college. I negotiate rates with students individually for tutoring, especially for aspiring poets.

Joseph's resume

I hold a BA with Honors in English from California State University, Sacramento, and an MA and a Phd in English both from the University of California at Davis. I have been teaching college level English since my graduate study days in the early 1990s. My own creative and critical writing has been published in juried venues, and I have won for my poetry.
