I derive great pleasure from teaching about languages and literature. I enjoy teaching courses on a wide range of literatures, including world literature and women’s literature. In my classes, I often emphasize issues of race, gender, class, and coloniality; I also discuss the religious aspects of the text, which often get overlooked.
I currently coach advanced English speakers online so they can perfect their oral and written communication. We often work with real-world materials such as articles, literature, films, videos, podcasts, art, music, or students' own writing so that the class has a practical aspect to it.
I have worked with college students, MA and PhD students, and professionals working in environmental affairs. I sometimes do live, online editing with my students so that they can learn why I make the choices I do. Contact me for more information today!
