About Kevin

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!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Public Speaking

I have been lecturing for more than twenty years in one of America's oldest universities and have given many public readings. I have also tutored many students there in the skills of public speaking and declamation. I have published two books which can be found on Amazon, where my art of public speaking can be closely viewed.

Writing

I have been teaching writing skills for many years and have published many books and essays and reviews. I am good at this!
