Hi! I have an Interdisciplinary Ph.d. from Tulane University, and over twelve years of teaching experience. I am a part-time professor at Tulane now. I have taught students of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities, in groups of all sizes. I have taught English, anthropology, linguistics, and standardized test preparation full-time, professionally. I have always received great student evaluations. Students, friends, and employers say that as a teacher I am unusually articulate, easy-going, and creative. I am also said to be unusually thorough, especially when responding to student writing. And I guarantee I can explain ANYTHING. I have an informal style but I am second to none in my knowledge of language and actually know how to teach as well!
But that's only my Tulane side. I have also been a New Orleanian for over 13 years, and I am a professional musician, playing jazz on Frenchmen Street every week. I know New Orleans's people and where they're coming from. So don't be afraid of my qualifications. My students always say I am laid-back and easy to get along with (when I'm not covering their papers with red ink!)
