Full-time lecturer at the U of Albany in the writing program

As a full-time lecturer in the Writing & Critical Inquiry program at the University at Albany, I am specially trained to help students learn to write more clearly and precisely. Every student, however, does not achieve the same goals in the same time. It is imp... [more]
