Former college instructor, award winning journalist with an MFA in Creative writing

Methodology

I have taught college level writing for 10 years. So I have experience helping with essays and term papers, technical writing, thesis writing and creative writing.

When you submit a paper to me I will return it with a line by line edit and also narrative comments about my thoughts on the work. This will give you detailed guidance.

My teaching style is to use the Socratic method--to draw out your critical thinking skills by asking thought provoking questions.

Background

I have taught writing courses at New Mexico Highlands University for the past 10 years. During that time I've averaged a score of 4.5 on a 5 point scale on all accumulated student evaluations.

Many of my students go one to advanced studies and careers in which their writing skills are an invaluable resource.
