About Coray

I am currently an adjunct writing instructor at DePaul University. Previously, I taught writing and composition at Columbia College (Chicago), Washington University (St. Louis), and Maryville University (St. Louis). I also taught literature courses at Maryville, Washington University, and Northwestern's Center for Talent Development. I have a Master's in Twentieth-Century British Literature from Washington University, and completed advanced doctoral research in British and Anglo-Irish Modernism before deciding to devote my energy to helping college students improve their writing. Although I work primarily with college students, I have also taught elementary, middle school, high school, and adult students. In 2014 and 2015 I worked as a master instructor at Northwestern University's Center for Talent Development. I have also worked as a GED and Adult Literacy instructor in Chicago.

I believe that every student has the capability to learn and become a more effective reader and writer. I am particularly interested in digital literacy and helping students become more critical thinkers and consumers of information. I think that learning can and should be fun. I've been working as a teacher and tutor for a number of years now, and I am able to adapt exercises and practices for individual students. Curious about what my methods might be? Please email me.
