Hey! I'm a recent graduate of Iowa State's MFA program! I really enjoyed teaching while I was there, and am hoping to continue teaching now that I've graduated! I've tutored international students, students with disabilities, and even one student who was applying for essay contests (and then went on to win a nationally competitive writing competition! I was very proud of him!) I was in the 90th percentile for both the SAT and the GRE verbals, and can help guide you through studying in either. I'm currently moving to and soon to be living in Eugene, Oregon. I'm publishing my own shorter work and doing the fourth major draft of my first novel. My two cats, Haroun and Suri, are the lights of my life. Also: cheesecake.
When I'm not working and writing, I try to travel as much as possible. Most recently I worked in New Zealand on a sheep farm, and before that I backpacked around Europe. Next I hope to finally make it around South America, although I'm not sure where I want to go; I'll have to do more research!
I look forward to meeting you!
As a part of teaching composition classes at Iowa State University, I was required to include public speaking units to enhance the student's communication modes on a variety of levels. I also have a theater background from high school, so I am well versed in breath support, projection, outlining a speech, determining your audience, using gestures to best effect, body language, facial expression manipulation, how to use the space in the room, etc. As a teacher, I think about those things all the time, and hate to see students struggling with those same concepts. I'm very willing to help a student become more comfortable with public speaking.
