University Instructor in English Composition, First-Year Writing and Business Writing in the Greater Philadelphia Area

Methodology

I believe strongly in the application of learned concepts, allowing the student to transfer concepts to their own work. For instance, my writing lessons are usually structured around learning a concept, analyzing examples of this concept and then practicing this concept through specific writing activities. Since every student has different needs, I strive to meet each student at their level of writing and push them to improve.

Background

I am a university instructor who has taught writing courses for more than 3 years, at distinguished institutions such as University of the Sciences, West Chester University of Pennsylvania and University of Delaware. I love helping students individually and providing group lessons in essay writing, preparation for college, resume and cover letter writing, and creative writing. I earned an M.A in English from the University of Delaware and a certificate in E-Learning Instructional Design from the University of Washington, and am proficient in online and in-person tutoring.
