About Kevin

I have a Master's Degree in Fine Arts-Fiction from the University of Nebraska MFA program, a UN-Omaha/UN-Kearney joint program. In partial completion of my MFA, I wrote a novel-length thesis, which included a 35-page critical essay on intermedia in literature, as well as gave a lecture on intermedia to my classmates and teachers. My literary interests are broad and range from graphic novels, such as "Watchmen" and "Strangers in Paradise," to classic literary works, such as "Gulliver's Travels" and "Frankenstein." My favorite books include "Nausicaa of the Valley of Wind," "The Book Thief," and "To Kill a Mockingbird."

For twelve years, I worked for ENCOR, a regional pseudo-government agency that oversees group homes and workshops for people with mental disabilities. I have also worked as a para-educator in a Special Education classroom. I occasionally tutor my four high-school aged siblings.

I am interested in tutoring all areas of English, including literature and grammar; however, I am most qualified to tutor composition and creative writing. One of my favorite aspects of writing is revision, the reshaping of what is already on the page to improve structure, coherence, and the flow of ideas.

Please contact me to learn more and/or to schedule lessons.
