I am knowledgeable and can help students uncover the mysteries of many types of literature, from Shakespeare to Gabriel Garcia Marquez, having studied English, Russian, African, and Hispanic literature at the undergraduate and graduate levels. In addition, I keep abreast of all the current research on these subjects.

Let me help you learn. I have given countless presentations and written many papers on literature topics, and it will be a great joy for me to be able to assist you in your understanding of the subject matter you are reading or about which you may have questions. I will make it fun for you but also will thoroughly guide you in everything you need to know for your papers and tests.

Middle school, high school, or university levels are welcome. When I tutor literature, my method is to engage the student in the process first by "unpacking" the story elements early on. Readers of literature have to use their imagination to identify with the characters. In addition, we will examine the work from critical and analytical standpoints. I like to use the Socratic Method in which there is considerable interaction between me and my students. Using this method helps engage the student so that questions can be answered and discussions can take place as we go along.
