Bio

I have been a professor of English composition and literature for over 10 years and have seen my students greatly benefit from my tutoring sessions.

I have been a professor of English composition and literature for over 10 years and have seen my students greatly benefit from my tutoring sessions.

Much like any art form, teaching is a skill acquired by experience, study and observation. To comprehend the requirements of this art, it is necessary to look at teaching from these three areas as they correspond to teaching. In teaching it is also necessary to be experienced in communicating and developing rapport. This helps the student to be more at ease. As such the dissemination of relevant information becomes more natural. I have come to learn that as the teacher understands the student the student understands the teacher and the learning process becomes more synergistic. This is the methodology I have employed over the years that has proven very successful.

Outside of my classes, tutoring is the time I can work with my students one on one and provide that individualized attention they need to succeed in their course. I enjoy writing an individualized lesson plan for students that is focused on their individual needs. For these reasons, I prefer to tutor working professionals and college students as I feel that is where I can have the most impact.

Public Speaking

I have been teaching a course in public speaking and debate since 2016. In this course students work to master such skills as getting audience attention/clearly identifying topic and establishing credibility in the introduction. Students also work on making sure main point is well supported and sources are documented. They also practice eye contact in the intro. body and conclusion. We cover delivery, body language, facial expression and the use if visual aids when presenting.
