About Ira

I spend my winter's at Southern Illinois University of Carbondale as I study for my Masters of Fine Arts in poetry. I have taught everything from guitar lessons to screenwriting over the past ten years. I currently teach introductory composition classes as a graduate assistant at my current university. I really enjoy helping others understand the things in life I struggled to learn. Reading and writing being one of the major hurdles I had to overcome as a child, just ask my mom or my first grade teacher.

I am a big believer in searching for a way to enjoy what you are learning. I did not really catch on to reading or writing until I was introduced to doing each in a way that I could really get behind. I also think learning is best done everyday and in small chunks. I think anyone is capable of learning proficiency, its all about being willing to work. That's what I love about teaching, helping people see that they are capable of more than they thought.

I hold a bachelor's degree in English from the University of Southern Indiana where I graduated cum laude. I have taught several classes in English composition at the college level. I have read, written about, and worked with all manner of literature over the years, and have a firm grasp on the basics of analysis. Having been a child who struggled with learning the basics of reading and writing, I have developed the necessary tools to help those who deal with the same problems.

Please contact me if you are interested in becoming a better reader or writer. I can help with work from kindergarten through the undergraduate college level.
