My Master's degree is in Writing, Rhetoric, and Discourse from DePaul University in Chicago, IL. I taught college writing and tutored writing there. In addition, I tutored writing at the University of La Verne. In both cases, I worked extensively with non-native speakers of English and I have received in-depth training in working with non-native speakers of English.

My experience includes:

5+ years of teaching and tutoring English and writing at the college level.

Professional work with a variety of styles of writing, ranging from technical documentation to literary and textual analysis.
