English adjunct professor tutors in literature, writing, poetry, test prep from Fort Morgan, CO.

Methodology

My method is to improve skills by focusing on areas of greatest weakness. In writing, I use individual conferencing. In reading, I teach fluent efficiency. In poetry, I use the workshop method. In test preparation, practice tests help the most.

Background

I am a retired high school and community college adjunct professor with 29 years of experience in teaching skills in reading, creative and non-fiction writing, poetry, and ACT/SAT preparation. I have many success stories of improved student achievement and in improved test scores.
