About Joe

My name is Joe and I'm currently writing my doctoral dissertation at Umass, where I was trained to teach in the university's nationally acclaimed writing program. My dissertation focuses on representations of race and identity in England and its former colonies in contemporary novels. I have been teaching a College Writing course on my own for 7 years and also have much experience as a teaching assistant and grader.

Typically, in all of my courses, I ask to read students' drafts so I can provide feedback for development in revision. I line edit for grammar, diction, clarity and more generally aim to propel students to be specific and clear while expressing their ideas. If a student demonstrates a particular weakness in an area of writing or grammar, I use exercises from the Purdue Owl Website to get them to understand and actualize a concept in their writing.

I consistently receive extremely high feedback in student course evaluations and specific details about how my method of reading drafts and working closely with students in conferences has helped many become stronger writers.

I hope to improve the critical thinking abilities of all my students both in their reading habits and their own writing. I believe these two aspects of critical thinking inform and reinforce each other. I will be teaching at a local community college this fall. Hope to meet soon!
