Experienced academic writer and teacher looking to help young writers at all levels!

Methodology

My teaching methods are very much based on practical skills, and focused on challenging a writer (regardless of their level) to, whenever possible, take the perspective of the reader. I am comfortable following curriculum guides, but am not afraid to assign extension activities based on the student's individual needs and interests.

Background

I have a Master's degree in Child/Educational psychology and have helped various researchers get their manuscripts published in refereed journals. I have also taught at all levels, from early elementary to university, so can address a wide variety of writing challenges and activities.
