Savannah, GA English Professor with over ten years experience teaching students of all ages.

Methodology

I have an M.A. in Literature and an M.F.A. in creative writing, and have been teaching at the college level for over ten years. I also enjoy tutoring students of all ages, and have experience teaching ESL and SAT prep as well.

Background

I have taught at a range of top universities and written letters of recommendation for students who went on to pursue master's degrees and doctorates. I have also edited numerous college entrance essays and helped students get into medical and law schools. Primary school students have improved their grades in English and other subjects immensely, as reading and writing affect all areas of schooling.
