Howdy! I am an English Ph.D. with 11 years of teaching experience at the university level as well as 8 years of teaching college preparation courses. My BA, MA, and Ph.D. are in English. My specialties are Writing, Rhetoric, Critical Theory, Philosophy, Religious Studies, Communication, and STEM Writing. I have experience with ESL tutoring as well as PSAT and SAT tutoring. I am equally adept at resume writing, scholarship application essays, and other business communication needs. My proficiency with communication and conflict consultation offers a wide range of tutoring options in order to serve my clients' diverse needs.
I took numerous religious studies courses in graduate school, which focused primarily on the history of Christianity. As a Rhetoric scholar, I've studied the ecumenical councils, ars praedicandi (art of preaching), biblical history, and theological arguments of Christianity.
While preparing for my PhD in rhetoric, I took courses in philosophy predicated on Aristotle's work in formal logic. My own work in rhetoric includes work with Aristotelian logic. I am equipped with a thorough understanding of Logical Proofs, particularly Linear Proofs. Much of rhetoric is dependent upon Formal Logic, including syllogisms, equivalencies, constructive dilemmas, fallacies, etc. I teach formal logic in my rhetoric courses.
Having a Ph.D. in Rhetoric, I've studied the great rhetoricians from Aristotle to Kenneth Burke. I teach the conventions of public speaking in the classroom and have ten years of public speaking experience. I've mentored debate teams and coached UIL impromptu speaking.
I am an English Professor and fully qualified to help your child.
