About Tina

I have been teaching in higher education for 14 years, tutoring for 8 years, and am currently a writing and literature professor. I received my PhD in English from Fordham University before moving to Roanoke. I have taught several types of composition and research courses and can work with students to practice basic writing skills, hone current writing skills, or learn how to write for college level courses. I take a process driven approach; I focus on revision, drafting, and student driven writing. After determining where you are struggling in your writing, I will work with you to strengthen your writing skills and learn how to plan, revise, and proofread essays.

I will also work with you to improve your critical reading skills and analysis skills, which will help your overall educational experience. We can work on how to analyze literary texts, including novels, short stories, and poetry, how to recognize literary elements, and how to use those literary elements to improve your analytical and writing skills. In many cases, I will read the text along with you so that when we meet, I will know exactly where you are and what passages you should be focusing on. We will discuss the text together, take notes, and develop ideas about the literature.
