I have spent the last 11 years as an English Composition and Literature instructor at the community college level. During that time, I have also worked as a one-on-one tutor is Writing Centers at the three colleges where I have taught. I especially enjoy working with students face-to-face and helping them improve their writing. I am a very patient and kind tutor, but also a strict taskmaster who will work with the student to identify areas for improvement. Typically, my first priority when looking at a student essay or other piece of writing is to identify higher order concerns, meaning organization and content, and how these can be tightened up. Secondarily, we will focus on lower order areas, like grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure. I'm also very familiar with documentation of sources in research essays. Of course, it is up to the student to inform me as to what the main focus of our session will be. My approach to tutoring is to get the student as involved in revision as possible, so that each session is a learning experience in which he or she improves and gains more confidence as a writer.
My educational background includes a B.A. in English, with a specialty in Creative Writing, and a Masters and Ph.D. in Folklore & Mythology, with a specialty in Medieval Celtic Literature and Languages. So, I am well-versed in all kinds of writing, from the creative to the academic.
I have taught English Composition and Literature courses at three different Denver-area community colleges for the past eleven years. Presently, as an adjunct instructor, I teach ENG 121 (Basic Composition), ENG 122 (Research Paper), and Introduction to Literature at Front Range Community College in Westminster. I also have many years of experience tutoring students in Writing Centers at all three of the colleges where I have worked. Additionally, I am the Literature specialist for Regis University's Online Irish Studies Program, which features courses in Irish History, Literature, and Archaeology. My educational background includes a B.A. in English, minor in German, from Metropolitan State College of Denver, and an M.A. and Ph.D. in Medieval Celtic Literature and Languages from the Folklore & Mythology Program at UCLA. I have four published articles in academic journals in Celtic Studies and Folklore, and am presently working on a book in this same field.
