Bio

I left Arizona and moved to New York to accept a full-time tenure-track position at SUNY at Alfred in Alfred, New York. Since then, I taught at several colleges in the Rochester area.

My background includes teaching English courses at the college level. My first teaching experiences were at Pima College in Tucson, Arizona, and Central Arizona College in Coolidge, Arizona. I left Arizona and moved to New York to accept a full-time tenure-track position at SUNY at Alfred in Alfred, New York. Since then, I taught at several colleges in the Rochester area.

Previous classes I have taught include English 101-Composition, English 105-Introduction to Literature, The Short Story, and Images of Women in Fiction. Other related experience includes working as a Yahoo News Contributor, writing articles for community newspapers. I also contributed freelance articles to a media outlet in Canandaigua, New York, and worked as a Writer/Public Relations Consultant for an organization, where I wrote articles about the agency that were published in newspapers across the Rochester/Finger Lakes region. I also had an article published in Animal Wellness Magazine in Aug/Sept. 2011.
Currently, I am working on a book that I hope to have published in the next year or so.

I also have experience working with ESOL students; most of my experience involves working with college students, but I am open to helping students of all ages who would like improve their writing, critical thinking, and analytical skills.

I see my role as a tutor as providing feedback on student writing and helping students to be able to see their own strengths and weaknesses in their writing. I enjoy working with students and helping them improve all aspects of their writing whether they are writing for academic or professional venues.

I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Lake Erie College in Painesville, Ohio, followed by a Master of Arts degree, also in English from the University of Iowa in Iowa City, Iowa.
