My teaching method is student-centered and holistic, allowing each learner to develop their unique voice while cementing an understanding of formal writing and thoughtful reading. My lesson topics and activities may include essay development, modes of rhetoric, close reading of academic texts, schema activation activities, vocabulary development and more. Contact me for more information or example lesson plans.
I have served as a tutor and lecturer of composition, developmental reading, creative writing and other English language subjects in community colleges, universities and vocational education settings. Over the last 7+ years I have successfully prepared hundreds of students to move on to university-level coursework and achieve their learning goals.
I hold a Master of Arts in English, Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing and Certificates in Teaching Post-secondary Reading and Composition from San Francisco State University. During my graduate studies I served as a one-on-one English tutor, General Instructional Aide for Creative Writing courses and lecturer of First Year Composition and Early Start English. I have also served as a Lecturer of Essential Skills English at Belfast Metropolitan College in Northern Ireland; Developmental Reading at De Anza Colllege in Cupertino, California; and English and College Skills at The Art Institute of California- San Francisco. Over the years I have developed a respect and passion for the English language that I love sharing with students of all ages who come from a variety of backgrounds.
