About Daniel

I am a composition instructor with more than ten years experience teaching college freshmen. Teaching has become a passion of mine over the years, and I am excited about the potential to help in your current writing goals and to prepare you for what to expect from college-level writing.

I have taught a variety of students in many different contexts and curricula. Locally, I had been employed as a writing instructor at several universities and colleges. The kind of assignments I have taught included personal narratives, argumentative essays, interpretive analyses, and thesis-driven research papers. Although I enjoy facilitating workshops and classroom instruction, I also find it rewarding meeting with students individually to talk about their specific goals and difficulties with assignments.

I also have experience teaching writing outside of composition classes. For instance, I have served as a tutor for students in math and science who needed extra help communicating their ideas for specific writing tasks. In addition, I spent several summers facilitating workshops for high school students for the Summer Academy for Math and Science (SAMS) designed to teach the skills required to write their essays for college applications.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve success.
