"Hi. I have been teaching various English classes for over 20 years. I love teaching. I love sharing my knowledge with students. Being in front of my students energizes me so that I can instill the love of writing and the written word into my students. When I am tutoring, I enjoy planning papers and projects with my students. We talk over the assignments and requirements and begin the work of drafting a paper or project. When my students already have the paper or project completed, we look over the paper together, knowing we have just started.

Witnessing the student's success is what I love most about teaching and tutoring.

These classes include Basic Grammar, Freshmen Rhetoric, Linguistics, Critical Thinking, Fundamentals of Liberal Art, Classical Literature and American and British Literature as well as independent studies for individual students.

I developed a work shop for students who had problems passing a Writing Proficiency Examination, proving they could, in fact, write. I also monitored the ACT for one of the universities.

Along with these classes, I have taught and tutored English as a Second Language. My ESL students have come from various locations on the globe. One of the students worked with was a graduate student at San Diego State University; she was working on her Masters in Psychology with an Emphasis in Assisted Technology.
