Former English teacher ( grades 6-12) and English professor (Freshman English and literature)

Methodology

My teaching methodology is no matter your educational level, everyone has the ability to learn. I can work with groups but have had success working one on one to offer assistance. I also try to make lessons fun and memorable by linking them to real-life situations.

Background

I am a former teacher who has taught for five years total both at the middle/high school and college level. I love teaching others about the English language in addition to writing about various subjects.I particulary love to teach students how to write for other subjects as well.
