About Joel

For the last seven years, I have deeply immersed myself in the study of writing and the teaching of English at the college level. While doing so, I have also found time to write educational literature guides for Shmoop.com and children's books for Reading A-Z. Pursuits such as these attest to my interest in all aspects of reading, writing, analysis, and research.

Even as the majority of my teaching experience has occurred in classrooms of 18-22 year olds, I have also spent six months working for Tucson's Aviva Children's Services, where I supported infants all the way up to teenagers.

In addition, I have moonlighted as an academic tutor since the 2008-9 school year, when I worked full-time for Launch Education and tutored elementary, middle, and high-school students in Los Angeles, CA. In terms of personal style, I am warm, gregarious, eager to support and build confidence, but I also have high expectations for all the students with whom I have the opportunity to work.

Thank you for your time, and I hope to hear from you soon!
