An experienced college instructor with a PhD and MFA from UC Irvine, I have worked one-to-one with many students from age 13 through adult and taught classes in composition, creative writing, literature, and rhetoric as well as grading AP essays in literature for the College Board.
I can help you not only with your academic assignments, but also with application essays and cover letters, resumes, and professional material, such as reports or journal articles, and can also edit articles, non-fiction, and books of poetry and fiction.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

I hold a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature and a M.A. in English, as well as a B.A. (cum laude) in English.

Film

I have studied film and taught it in my humanities and composition classes for many years at the college and university level.

Grammar

I have been a teacher of composition for over 35 years. As such, one of my tasks has been to teach students to write effective sentences, paragraphs, and essays.
Without teaching much grammar per se, since research has shown this to be ineffective, I show them that all sentence errors can be classified as problems with completeness, unity, or cohesion.
Knowing this, it becomes easier to recognize and correct such problems in one's writing.

Literature

I have taught literature of all kinds in my classes, including essays, poetry, plays, novels, and short stories.

Proofreading

One of my jobs as a teacher has been to grade papers. Though grading involves far more than just proofreading, it also demands that I point out typos, spelling errors, and other problems in the paper.

Writing

I have taught college composition classes at all levels, from basic and developmental writing to research and argumentation. In addition, I have tutored students from middle school age to professional school level and beyond.
