Retired English teacher gives literature lessons to middle school and high school levels via Skype.

Methodology

I am a retired English teacher and creative writer with a general knowledge of world literature and a particular knowledge of American literature. I am a firm believer in supporting the learning of students by helping them establish a goal for each lesson.

Background

I have been teaching for 30 years and have taught approximately 120 students each year; that's about 3,600 students. About 90% of my students have received high school diplomas and several have had fiction placed in state and national competitions.
