Widely Published Professor (Emory Ph.D.) with 30 Years' Experience Teaches English and Related Subjects In Greenville and Columbia Metro Areas

Methodology

The needs and abilities of my students shape and guide my approach to teaching. With over 30 years' experience as a teacher, professor, and academic, I am able to assess my students quickly, evaluate their progress accurately, and assist them in meeting their goals in a warm, friendly, and supportive atmosphere. My love of teaching has its source in the joy that comes from seeing my students grow and achieve.

Background

I am a life-long academic and college professor (Emory Ph.D.), author of three academic books and over 20 publications who has been teaching and tutoring since 1986. I am experienced in one-on-one and group instruction, both face-to-face and online. My main areas are English Composition, Rhetoric, Public Speaking, French, German, and Classical History and Culture.
