My students learn how to learn.

My M.A. in Dramatic Literature and Ph.D. in the Study of Literature through Performance in Cultural and Historical Contexts introduced me to theories of organic unity and how literary and dramatic arts serve students' personal and interpersonal growth. A professor of International Baccalaureate Diploma Program English A Literature and English B (ESL) Literature for over nine years, I witness how many bright students enjoy developing their imaginations as well as synthesizing their creative and critical thinking skills through my guided study of literature.

Patient, experienced, skillful tutor in writing, grammar, literature

I have taught literature at all levels in college and have tutored students from sixth grade to college in literary analysis. I focus on an understanding of key elements--plot, character, setting and theme. I also put a strong emphasis on understanding more complex techniques, such as metaphor and symbol. In the end, the goal is for the reader to be able to see the literary work as an integrated whole. I love to learn and to help others learn, a pleasure I had for nearly forty years as a college instructor in writing and literature at The College of Wooster in Ohio. Although I taught many [more]

Experienced ESL and writing tutor

I taught literature at the University of Maryland, Asian Division, for eight years. I have taught in many different situations: large classes in universities, small classes in corporations, and one-on-one tutoring. I prefer one-on-one tutoring because I can personalize the lessons to meet the needs of individual students. I love teaching because it's all about people, and I like people! It's also extremely satisfying when I see my students' skills improve. I have a master's degree in English literature, a certificate in teaching academic writing, and a CELTA certificatio... [more]

Language Arts Wizard

I have studied literature at both the undergraduate and graduate college level. As an M.A. student, I completed a thesis on Charles Bukowski's first five novels. As a Writing Assistant, I also led a workshop on how to write essays on literature. For nine months, I worked as a tutor at the MTSU Writing Center. My goal as a tutor is to help learners succeed by useful strategies for reading and writing. I believe that revising and editing skills are vital to the writer. It is rare that a first draft of any piece of writing will ever be "complete," and as a tutor, I enjoy offering feedback on what [more]
