I've been a writer and a poet since I was in elementary school. I landed my first job as an editor when I was in the sixth grade and have been involved with all aspects of writing and editing ever since. I am a Beowulf scholar and my style of literary criticism is Cultural Materialism, which means I look at the way a work has been treated over the years and in different forms. Although many folks find Beowulf unreadable, I have always understood that it is important to make these old stories come alive and I have done so by involving myself with living history groups.

I have worked with secondary education level and college students with regard to writing, editing and understanding literature. I've worked with younger students as well and have enjoyed helping them with reading, writing and literary comprehension. I worked with adult ESL students from a variety of countries and really enjoyed that experience. I believe that not only should English be fun, but our involvement with writing and literature should be relevant in our own lives.

ESL/ESOL

Back after I had earned my BA-English, but before grad school & my MA-English, I worked with adult ESL students. My students were native speakers of various languages: Chinese dialects, Korean, Spanish and Russian. I worked with them as a group for some exercises. Once those were finished, I would work with students one on one. I've have them read aloud, help with definitions and pronunciation. This was very rewarding work and I'd love the chance to do some of this sort of tutoring again.
