The Things I Do

I’m an educator with 15 years’ experience designing and teaching courses at the college level. I have the research and analytical skills of an R1 PhD (though not the finished dissertation), and strong, adaptable editorial skills. Because most of my teaching career has been focused on teaching composition, I am also extremely skilled at asking the right questions to help others find the answers and solutions they need, even when they originally thought they wanted something else.
