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. I have seen the difficulties that students have with writing from several different angles. I teach (and grade papers!) at the college level, and have been doing so for ten semesters, in 100- and 200-level and adult education courses. 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]

Director of Music at Marquette Park, With Degrees in Science and Music

I grew up in central Indiana, fully expecting to become a scientist of some type or variety. I have a prodigious natural talent for the life sciences, so I went to Indiana University to study biology. While there, I discovered an equal drive and passion for the study of jazz, and enrolled in the prestigious Jacobs School of Music after a lengthy audition process. Thanks to my drive to succeed at music and my ability to understand and internalize high-level biology concepts, I graduated with a... [more]
