About the lesson

In every course that I teach, I stress the importance of effective reading and writing while emphasizing the key distinctions between periods, genres, and styles. At the same time, I always encourage students to challenge accepted beliefs, particularly those concerning human nature. Students in my classes therefore have the opportunity to improve their reading and writing skills and to expand their knowledge of the subject matter at hand while improving their critical thinking skills. I have usually required students to submit at least two formal essays per semester, and I have often offered students the option of submitting a creative piece in place of a third essay. With respect to my teaching style, I am inclined to lecture, but I also welcome questions and discussions.

I have taught, tutored, and advised students from virtually every academic level and discipline, and I have had particularly rewarding experiences working with countless international students (many of whom did not speak English as their first language) and students with learning challenges.

About John

I have Master's degree in English from Acadia University and a Diploma in Journalism from Holland College, and I have been teaching English at UNB and STU in Fredericton, NB for twenty-one years. From 2000 to 2017 I held a sessional position at STU, where I taught thirty-seven sections of introductory English, fourteen sections of the Short Story, a section each of Women Writers, Comedy, and Tragedy, and a handful of sections of Introduction to University Studies. During my first eight years at STU, I was simultaneously employed at UNB as an Instructor for Arts 1000/The Development of Western Thought, so I have a strong general background in the Arts and Humanities.

In 1997 I taught my first of eight sections of Fundamentals of Clear Writing at UNB, and over the course of four years I would teach a number of introductory English courses at the university. I was also employed during this time at UNB's Writing and Study Skills Centre, where I tutored students one-on-one, conducted study skills workshops, and mentored students on academic probation.

I returned to UNB this past academic year to teach two sections of Fundamentals of Clear Writing and to tutor once again via the campus's Writing and Study Skills Centre. I am still employed part-time at STU, and I am scheduled to teach the Short Story there in July, but due to a significant decline in enrollment, my future at STU is uncertain.
