Much of my teaching methodology involves rapport. Most instructors and tutors have knowledge and expertise in their chosen fields, but few have the capacity to reach students on an intellectual and personal level. In short, teaching is a passion, not merely a job.
I have taught English, literature, creative writing, and journalism at the college level for 20 years. Moreover, I have had the opportunity (and privilege) to tutor, both collectively in a classroom and individually.
My students, at all levels and for all subjects, have improved their writing skills, often significantly.
My standard rate is $20 per hour, either in person or remotely. If you must cancel or reschedule an appointment, plus notify me 24 hours in advance.
