Experienced Certified Teacher: Italian; English Writing Skills; ESL

It gives me great pleasure to transmit a love of writing to my students. I enjoy crafting short stories, essays, memoirs and poems. Once my students have learned the basics of proper grammar, syntax, spelling and composition, they realize what a wonderful creative outlet writing can be, in addition to being an absolute necessity for school and in the current highly-competitive job market. I teach students at all levels (elementary school, middle school, high school, and college students, in addition to adults who are returning to school or merely wish to improve their writing skills.) I am al [more]

Writing, Reading, and Critical Thinking for the Humanities

Ten semesters teaching and grading at the college level; two and a half years in two college writing centers; many years writing papers for college and graduate school.

As a result, I know what your professors will be looking for! The classes themselves have been philosophy, literature, and writing courses, which all involve critical reading and writing, so I ha [more]
