I am a composition/literature/writing instructor at the University of Alabama and Shelton State Community College. I've been teaching for around 7 years. I've worked with students of many ages, backgrounds and writing abilities. I like to communicate one on one with my students to ensure they understand the subject.
I've been teaching since 2011 and I currently am the instructor for around 100 students, but I only teach on Tuesdays and Thursdays usually so I'm looking to help others in need of instruction by providing my tutoring services for any English class.
