About Kathleen


Bio

If you're frustrated with your writing, struggling to find the words to express your ideas, and worried about research, delivery, and debate, I may be the person for you! I am a professor of composition and literature lecturer. I enjoy training students in close-reading, grammar, and writing, with an especial love for poetry and drama.

If you're frustrated with your writing, struggling to find the words to express your ideas, and worried about research, delivery, and debate, I may be the person for you! I am a professor of composition and literature lecturer. I enjoy training students in close-reading, grammar, and writing, with an especial love for poetry and drama. I have also trained students in public speaking, presentation, and debate (Model NATO and Model League), with a particular focus on college-level debate (five years experience).

I have a decade of experience in English (my BA inn English and my MA in Literature from SMU) and have instructed undergraduates in composition and British literature for six years. I have also mentored younger students in reading and have extensive experience teaching grammar, editing, and proofreading to writers of all levels. Finally, as a doctoral student in education (EdD), I also have proficiencies in professional editing, graduate-paper editing, and research.

If you are interested, please contact me with three things:
A scheduled date and time
What subject(s) you wish to address
What you want the end goal of our session to be (I also give discounted rates if you prefer editing, rather than hands-on tutoring, via Google docs).

I look forward to working with you and appreciate your consideration.

Cheers,
KMH

Public Speaking

Public Speaking

Although I formally teach rhetoric and composition. I also coached debate for three years at the college where I currently teach. I was a college level debater for four years and also presented a number of academic presentations in my undergraduate and graduate careers. Each of these experiences required the condensation of research into timed speeches. I continue to give speeches and teach students a unit on how to construct speeches. If I need to provide a syllabus or CV, I am happy to do so!

The best tutor I’ve had from this site

She is amazing. She really cared about you as a student and if you don’t understand something, she helps you understand it. I will continue using her for any English related issues I have. Money well spent. Don’t hesitate to hire her!
