"I am currently earning my Masters in Fine Arts Degree from Brooklyn College, in English Writing (Poetry.) I am living in Pittsburgh for the rest of the 2018 year, and so my schedule is flexible. As a graduate student, I have taught both as an Adjunct Lecturer of English Comp, and as an Assistant Professor in English Comp, at Brooklyn College (one semester each.) I met with students on a one-on-one basis regularly, outside and inside of the classroom.

As an adjunct lecturer, I solely taught and designed my own class (of twenty five freshman students) in English Composition.

I met with and was eager to help students with the editing of their own english papers, by talking to students through their own processes on a one-on-one basis.

All stages of the writing process were discussed and edited, including: learning, through multiple drafts, how to clearly state and organize the material of a paper (including secondary source material), working towards a final draft through the use of writing multiple drafts and structured outlines, and fixing grammatical and syntactical errors,

In my own comp class, I designed the course in a way where every final paper was to be written at least three times over. This emphasis on process, instead of product, allowed each student to be able to see the errors they were making, both in the beginning of their writing process as well as later, as the student was able to point out what errors he or she was continuously making over a series of drafts. I set up required office hours and in-class peer review in order to regularly promote a discussion of students’ questions, frustrations, and comments on the state of their writing process.

Therefore, I have experience teaching and talking to students about every level of the writing process for various kinds of compositional english needs." less...
