About Martinique

I love working with students on their writing. Many students are anxious about writing for so many reasons so a big part of what I do is help students understand that the anxiety is normal, but that we can work through it. Every student I work with is a writer and together I help writers figure out how to improve. This might mean we work on organization by talking about what you want to say before we write. We might work on improving your ability to spot error so you can improve on your own. We may work on arguments -- are they coherent? How can you tell? What kind of evidence do you need? Throughout all of this, my top priority is respecting the students' ideas and ability.

I have worked (and still do) as an academic librarian (college-level) helping students learn to do research and can help writers with research as well. I also work as a college writing instructor and have worked in a university writing center as a writing tutor. These experiences have shaped my approach and taught me that working one on one with writers is rewarding work. I look forward to helping writers at high school level and above with all aspects of their writing. Everyone has something to say and can improve as a writer.

My training in writing center pedagogy and my graduate work in English prepared for teaching writing at the college level. Once I began teaching I have worked very closely with colleagues to improve my skills as a writing teacher. I am reflective and always looking to improve. My students regularly report having improved as writers and one of my highest ratings is in response to the question "I feel my teacher cares about me and my work."

Please contact me to work on any aspect of your writing. We can start with your assignment or application question, or review something you about to submit to your teacher or for publication.
