About Abigail

Greetings! With an A. B. in English from Occidental College, a Master's in English from NYU, and a TESOL Certificate from University of California at Berkeley, my background has both depth and diversity. My coursework included writing, grammar, linguistics, methods and methodology. I was both a high school instructor and a community college professor.

My style is lively, but thorough and makes use of varied readings, and film and current events. I teach the art of rhetoric-which is knowing the writer's audience, and have simplified a structure which visually explains the composition and research paper. In regard to ESL, my philosophy is that of communicative competence; I work to make certain my ESL students are understood and respected. Writing and communication are skills that are imperative for satisfying employment. In my prior life, I was a very successful research writer on a trading desk on Wall Street. Fine writing will serve a student for life; it is my belief and experience anyone can become a strong writer.
