About Cassandra

A writer and full-time college writing instructor, I have worked at a large university for the past seven years. My classrooms are college freshmen across all disciplines, and I guide these students in learning to write rhetorically; that is, I help them adapt their writing projects to a purpose, audience, and context. Over the years, I have also worked with students in the university's writing center, and thoroughly enjoy the dynamic of one-on-one instruction and dialogue.

I look forward to working with students to help them develop their writing voice and to address resistance to writing. Whether it's a struggle with developing an idea, or planning the structure of a piece of writing, as well as the many elements in between, the writing process can be a challenge and an adventure. I welcome both in my work with students.

I listen to my students, acknowledging their struggles with writing. If students feel the only important thing about writing is perfection, they are daunted, so I take time to guide them through the process. Patience and the mutual establishment of trust are hallmarks of my teaching.

I do expect my students to give back in the learning process. Attention is everything, and so is asking questions. Neither of those can happen if a student is unnecessarily distracted. For example, if they feel it's more important to check their phones during a lesson, we won't get very far. So, right from the outset, I set the example and express the wish for mutual respect.
