About Darrell


Bio

I was a teacher of English at Ivy Tech Community College from September 2010 until May 2018. Through my instruction, students of various nationalities learn the mechanics of writing (grammar, punctuation, and spelling) as well as critical thinking skills, such as how to write a thesis statement, how to organize an essay, how to capture the interest of the reader, and the difference between writing to inform and writing to persuade.

I was a teacher of English at Ivy Tech Community College from September 2010 until May 2018.

I earned my TESOL certificate in 2017, and in May 2018 I became an instructor at the Fort Wayne center of ELS Educational Services. The center teaches English to students from around the world who come to the United States to study at colleges and universities. Lessons focus on writing skills such as grammar, spelling, and punctuation, as well as organizing and writing essays in a variety of academic formats.

In addition to imparting knowledge, I have a passion for encouraging students and helping them to succeed. My commitment to high standards and an informal atmosphere will make our tutoring sessions enjoyable and productive for both of us.
