I have been teaching Composition and Literature since 1986, when I began my graduate studies at the University of Miami, FL. I received my Ph.D. in English in 1997. I have taught all levels of writing and composition, and I am fluent in Spanish. I speak basic French. I am an expert proofreader, editor, and grammar teacher. I am at ease speaking in front of the classroom or tutoring on an individual basis, and I am comfortable with students of all ages: children, adolescents, college students, and adults.
Teaching and tutoring allow me to share all of my learning to others who will benefit from it, and I love dealing with language and the written word. I believe that our choice of words in both written and spoken language are as important and should be as precise as an artist's choice of color and texture for a work of art. Similarly, I think that seemingly pedantic concerns such as punctuation and grammar are in fact as important to a student and writer as the proper tool is for a surgeon.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
