TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching undergraduates and adults since 2005. I began as a peer tutor at the Kenyon College Writing Center, assisting students with research, outlining, and revising academic papers. At Case Western Reserve University, I worked with both traditional and nontraditional students to help them improve their writing and research methods, and also began working with ESL students to help them improve their spoken and written English skills. While at CWRU, I also served as a writing liaison for the SAGES program, and was a writing instructor for ENGL/ENGR 398, a professional and technical communication course for undergraduate engineering students. Since coming to Texas in 2008, I have focused my efforts on private tutoring, continuing to work primarily with adult and undergraduate ESL students. I have also helped high school students prep for the SAT and ACT, and undergraduates prepare for the GRE. In 2012, I also began to teach creative writing, both one-on-one and in a workshop context. In 2013, I became an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Austin Community College, teaching in the Business and Technical Communication Program.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My workshops are safe yet constructive spaces, in which I challenge students without destroying their self-confidence.
