I have a Master's degree in English and have taught remedial writing and composition at the college level for the past 19 years. Since 1991, I have been a writing instructor at Community College of Philadelphia and for the last ten years have been both a writing tutor and composition instructor at LaSalle University. During this time, I have taught students from diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds and a range of skill levels. Through this experience, I have developed a writing curriculum that is simple to understand and apply. As a tutor, I can teach an entire writing course, focus on a particular concept, or assist in completing a specific project. In addition, I have been involved in basic education classes for both adults and children wishing to improve their skills.I try to use my abilities to help as many who need help as I can.
