I have been a University Professor of English for the last 30 years, specializing in literature, English education, and online learning. I enjoy helping high school and college students improve their reading, writing and thinking skills, from basic essay assignments to advanced research papers and analytical writing. The Wyzant online system allows for direct textual editing, so I can work dynamically with students to improve their writing and argumentation. I am currently teaching all my college courses online and familiar with a variety of internet learning platforms.

I am quite familiar with most literary works in the high school and college curricula, and am particularly well-versed in Shakespeare's plays, nineteenth-century British novels and twentieth-century American fiction and poetry. I am familiar with the curricula and conventions of high school essay writing, and I have worked with many students to improve their college admissions essays.

I have experience working with students with various learning styles and enjoy creative teaching approaches. Having graduated from a non-traditional college (no grades, no required courses), attended an Ivy League graduate school, and taught at a state university, I am comfortable with a broad range of learning strategies. Many students face challenges based on their specific learning and thinking styles, and I work hard with students to create reading and writing strategies that will take advantage of their strengths and give them confidence.

A very calm and patient teacher

Today is the first time we meet Mr K., he read the essays my son wrote in the summer camp to get to know his writing level, he also evaluated my son's reading speed, browsed English and social study curriculums for the coming school year, came up with a plan for the next move. Mr K. is calm and patient, we look forward to the next lesson with him.
