Hi All,

I have been a Writing and Communication Studies instructor at the University level for the past 5 years. I teach many subjects including public speaking, critical thinking, and essay writing. In the classroom I stress engagement in the material and try to make the subjects relevant to the students in this media driven society. Part of my teaching methods also includes conferencing and one-on-one instruction with individual students. In conferencing students and I discussion the paper topic to generate ideas, work on building outlines to help with the organization of an essay or speech and ultimately write and edit the final work. I have worked with a diverse population of students with all writing backgrounds and find there is no such thing as a bad writer. There are ways of communicating more effectively however!

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.

Career Development

I have taught business communications and interviewing courses at SCU and SJSU. In these classes students prepare resumes, cover letter, career portfolios, and work on interviewing skills. I have taught these courses over the past three years.

College Counseling

I have been a college pre-law counselor at both Santa Clara University and San Jose State University over the past five years. Part of my responsibilities in this role was to help students prepare their applications for graduate schools. I have worked with college admissions counselors and helped students specifically in writing essays for college and law school applications.

Public Speaking

I have taught public speaking at both Santa Clara University and San Jose State University over the past four years. I am familiar with writing and outlining a proper speech as well as helping students with several delivery methods. I also help students combat the anxiety felt during public speaking situations. I have worked with different learning styles and non-native speakers.
