Warm and friendly Ph.D student in Psychology with years of teaching experience offering lessons in English literature, classic literature and test prep for all grade levels (primary through adult ed.)

My teaching philosophy is that every student learns differently and has different needs. This is why I don't believe in a one size fits all teaching method. I asses each student and create a lesson plan based on their needs and the subject matter being taught. I have found from my years of teaching that this methodology is what works best.

Local San Angelo artist with a Master's degree in English and writing will teach you not what to think, but HOW to think using literature and language.

Writing is not something you are either born "good" or "bad" at. It is a skill. It is a set of tools. If you have a hammer, it might be easy to hang a picture, but just a hammer won't cut a board in half. Writing is the same way, you may have the tools to write a great narrative, but just narration won't create a killer essay.
