Reading & Writing In Any Form!

I studied Creative Writing at New York University and the University of Florida. At the latter institution, I earned my MFA in fiction and have worked with writers including Amy Hempel, Jill Ciment, Padgett Powell, and David Leavitt. Reading and writing are considered chores for many of us. If you talk to those around you, you may easily find that they dread the task or simply believe they are the worst when it comes to expressing their thoughts on paper. Perhaps you are even one of these folks. Welcome to the world of reading and writing: it's difficult for everyone! We all have to work at [more]

AP physics, chemistry and math tutor

I was always skeptical towards test questions about an author's tone or intent. Worst were those that forced me to predict with what the author would likely agree. But the clues are all there in the choice of words and structure of sentences. Once I was able to understand it, I appreciated literature much more. I even went back and reread some of the classics later. I now admit to being a bookworm. I can't promise that you'll become a bibliophile, but I do hope to help you comprehend through close reading, historical referencing and biographical research. [more]
