Patient and skillful tutor in writing, grammar and 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]

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. They also enjoy their high marks. An [more]

Excellent English tutor for writing; research; grammar; literature

Having taught English and American literature and writing to both high-school students and adults for many years, I've gained not only compassion for my students but immense experience and helpful teaching-techniques as well.

But perhaps most significant is my delight and love for literature of all kinds...from not only the United States, but from the many new [more]
