Bio

Dear Future Student,

I have been teaching young people like You how to write about literature and how to read literature closely for many years; I have won awards of distinction for the high quality of my teaching.

I teach how it is to read a text slowly and then to write comprehensively about what has been understood: this is a great art and essential to any intellectual endeavor. Both prose and poetry are my field. Good grammar and syntax are basic instruments in this work but...

Dear Future Student,

I have been teaching young people like You how to write about literature and how to read literature closely for many years; I have won awards of distinction for the high quality of my teaching.

I teach how it is to read a text slowly and then to write comprehensively about what has been understood: this is a great art and essential to any intellectual endeavor. Both prose and poetry are my field. Good grammar and syntax are basic instruments in this work but an understanding of how literacy functions is equally important. If you want to learn about literature I guarantee that I will change your life and lead you toward excellence!

As for my background, I have published many books, essays, reviews, poetry, and articles and have taught for many years at the best university in the country; I have a Ph.D. in literature. I think that it is essential for young students today to be able to write clear and analytical prose: this is necessary for any work in the humanities and it is this skill which I teach ... and I teach it well!

I so look forward to being your instructor!
