About Casey

I am a university instructor of writing and literature and a published poet and scholar. I finished my graduate work in 2015 to correspond with my fortieth birthday, so I have great compassion and empathy for adult students. I also enjoy working with English Language Learners (ELLs). I am a certified teacher of adult English learners. I obtained my Cambridge CELTA certification through the University of Texas at Austin International Office in 2014.

Primarily, I am an excellent listener; after that, I have access to many useful resources that can help you become a better writer, reader of literature, or speaker of English. I am happy to work with you online or at a location central to both of us. I find public libraries or the Lamar University library to be positive and quiet learning spaces, but I will be somewhat flexible on this. I prefer not to meet in your home or mine; our personal spaces are sacred and should be kept private.

The longer we work together, the more success we will achieve together. Contact me to schedule our first meeting, and let's plan how I can best help you meet your personal and professional goals. I look forward to meeting you and to being part of your journey.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

IELTS

I received my CELTA certification in 2014, so I have exposure to IELTS concepts and requirements. I would carefully consider each student's specific needs before agreeing to tutor him or her.

Cambridge CELTA, University of Texas at Austin, August 2014.

Public Speaking

In addition to being a professional writer and teacher of writing, I am also an experienced singer and public speaker. There are aspects of public speaking I could tutor effectively, from writing a rhetorically sound and fact-based speech to breath control, posture, timing, and audience connection.

Voice (Music)

I have studied voice since I was sixteen years old, or for twenty-four years. I studied vocal performance and opera at Lamar University and Texas State University, though I did not pursue a professional singing career. I received a minor in music when I completed my BA English in 2013.
