About Lorin

My favorite thing about teaching is seeing my students gain the confidence to ask tough questions, to think critically about the world around them, and to engage with their community in meaningful ways. I love teaching writing because most students think they can't write or hate to write, but eventually most of them come to enjoy it and begin to see writing as a way of thinking through things.

I have a PhD in Rhetoric and Writing and experience teaching writing at the college and high school level, along with experience working at a Writing Center. I specialize in working with students on every phase of the writing process: brainstorming topics, doing research, building an argument, revising, proofreading, etc. I also teach public speaking and literature, and can help you analyze language in its various forms.

I am typically available for tutoring weekday afternoons and evenings from 2:00-5:00 pm and 8:30-10:00 pm. I prefer online appointments, but am available for in-person appointments on a case-by-case basis. I look forward to working with you!
