Hello Everyone (students and parents),
I have been teaching English composition, developmental English, poetry, and creative writing at a community college for over twenty years. Students have found my classes helpful, encouraging and informative. Many have gone away with a renewed sense of the intelligence they carry within themselves; and how with positive encouragement, they can always tap into that intelligence. Students have ranged in age from 16 (high school students who take college level courses while simultaneously completing high school classes) to those returning individuals who have been as old as 80! The class population also has included many international students from every continent on the globe! Community college instructors, by definition, participate in one-to-one help. No large university auditoriums here. Classroom size has always been limited to approximately 26 students. In addition I have provided many office hours of tutoring assistance which I find so very rewarding and helpful to the student and to my improvement as an instructor. As a published poet and present Tai Chi practitioner, I believe these interests help me to bring out the full potential in each individual.
