College writing instructor published in various genres with a Literary English M.A.

Methodology

Feedback is essential for improvement, regardless of a student's age or education level, especially for writing and speaking. I assign different types of rhetorical modes or essays designed to increase both critical thinking and communication skills. As an author of both academic and non-academic work, I understand the appropriate requirements for each. By practicing first drafts and revisions based on my personalized feedback, I have seen my students make great strides in improving their writing skills. We work on making ideas clearer by revising content and structure, in addition to correcting mechanics and grammatical issues that come after proofreading and editing the first draft.

Background

Susana Falcon earned her B.A. in French Literature, with a minor in Spanish studies. Before graduating from C.C.S.U., she studied for a year at the American University of Paris. After post-graduate work at the N.Y.U. School of Professional Studies and the New School in Manhattan, she transitioned to becoming an author, penning sixteen published novellas, three full-length novels, and four full-length screenplays. She then earned her M.A. in Literary English and Creative Writing, with a concentration in Screenwriting, and began teaching at the State College of Florida, in Bradenton.

Susana has also tutored students of various ages privately, helping them become better readers and writers. She remains an adjunct faculty member at SCF, where she teaches academic writing and the essentials of good rhetoric. Off-campus, she offers feedback to aspiring and professional novelists and screenwriters. She has a passion for helping individuals learn to use their own unique voice clearly, concisely, and effectively, whether they are working to master scholastic or creative writing.
