About Daxton

I have taught English composition and literature for thirteen years at the college level. I am very passionate about teaching students how to become critical thinkers through reading and to articulate their ideas verbally and in writing. I encourage students to understand the importance of forming a solid foundation in reading and writing skills that they can then transfer to other college courses and later into their own professional careers. I try to make learning fun and relevant to students by having them read texts that are interesting and relevant to their own lives and then ask them to write about the reading through assigned topics of their own choosing. After an initial assessment of a student's reading and writing level, we begin to build on that student's innate learning skills, while simultaneously addressing and focusing on the specific difficulties that need to be improved. I'm very laid back, patient and use a variety of methods to engage students in and outside the classroom: some of these include varying assignments and oral and written exercises and activities, using film and other forms of visual media to supplement the learning process, and understanding the needs of each individual student with whom I interact.
