About Alex


Bio

I specialize in writing. It is my passion. I also have a deep understanding of literature, plot, character, and symbolism. As a writer I speak publicly often and with authority. There are many techniques used for those who struggle in presentations.

I have experience tutoring at The Evergreen Writing Center, and taught ESL in South Korea between 2010-2012.

Writing is never easy, even for professionals. The written word is a form of communication. One that is as complex as it is...

I specialize in writing. It is my passion. I also have a deep understanding of literature, plot, character, and symbolism. As a writer I speak publicly often and with authority. There are many techniques used for those who struggle in presentations.

I have experience tutoring at The Evergreen Writing Center, and taught ESL in South Korea between 2010-2012.

Writing is never easy, even for professionals. The written word is a form of communication. One that is as complex as it is mysterious. My time as a tutor at The Evergreen Writing Center helped me understand the anxieties many people feel when confronted with a writing assignment. One of the main difficulties in writing is communicating thoughts concisely and thoroughly. Writing is an act we learn at such a young age, it is sometimes easy to forget that forming letters with a pen or pencil is only the most basic aspect of the craft. Writing, like music, is not something anyone is naturally perfect at. In fact, it takes years of practice to hone these skills of communication, which go far beyond passing a test. Being a proficient writer means being a proficient thinker; someone who can transcribe their thoughts with the written word.

My goal for each session, regardless of whether it is focused on writing, public speaking, or literature, is that the student come away with a deeper understanding of the material at hand was well as their own thoughts concerning that material. Only when a student understands his or her own ideas is there lasting progress.

As a writer my fiction has appeared in eFiction, Smokebox Literary Magazine, Best New Writing 2016, and The Cost of Paper Volume Three.

Contact me with questions about sessions, scheduling, or even writing and I'll respond as soon as I can.
