About the lesson
I am passionate about English literature and language and I enjoy sharing this passion with others through teaching using a discussion and inquiry based format to help students enhance their understanding of the connection between argumentation and clarity of expression. I encourage students to think of writing and reading as a multi-step process and instill them with confidence through patience and compassion. I have been studying English at the post-secondary level (undergraduate and graduate) for almost a decade. I am currently pursuing a PhD in English.

I have been a teacher at the post-secondary level for four years. During this time, I have had the pleasure of seeing students transfer the skills acquired in tutorial to other subject areas. One student said the critical thinking skills she learned helped her on her Dental School application - she was accepted!
I also have two years of experience of private tutoring. I tutor students who range in grade (from grade 8 to grade 11) and ability.
To whom it may concern,
It is my pleasure to write this letter to recommend Deanna to teach English literacy.
Deanna has started teaching my son since my son was in middle school, we have got to know Deanna very well in 5 years time.
Deanna is highly knowledgeable in English writing, my son has constantly learned something new after each class with Deanna. As a result, my son’s English was improved tremendously, and currently is in the top 10% in the class.
Deanna is very intelligent and her feedbacks to my son’s work were sharp and insightful. My son has been always amazed by Deanna’s feedbacks. His work has turned into a beautiful piece of art after incorporating Deanna’s feedbacks.
Deanna is also very professional. She has always completed reviewing the work and met with my son on time. If she had conflict to the meeting, she has always communicated to my son well in advance. She is a very lovely lady and always being energetic, joyful and patient. Deanna’s professionalism has won my son respects all the time.
I would like to highly recommend Deanna to any student who wants to improve English, Deanna will bring you a wonderful English study experience and eventually be successful in English Literacy study.
Deanna’s student’s Parent
Deanna is a great English tutor who gives thorough and detailed feedback on my grammar and writing. She is always kind and patient when teaching, and challenges me to think about literature in new ways. She is very dedicated and takes time to comment on my essays through email when I need help. It has been a great time working with Deanna!
