I have a PhD in comparative literature, and I've taught literature, culture, and writing courses in a university setting. I also work as an online writing tutor for a public university. In addition to my academic credentials, I am also an award-winning author and have published essays, short stories, and two novels. I have been featured on podcasts such as Neon Jazz, Progress 4 Tomorrow, and Diversity on Fire. 
Homework Offered
If possible, students should submit any specific essay prompts to which they are responding three days prior to our first meeting, along with a draft of any work that has already been completed, in order to allow me time to prepare for our work together. It would also be helpful if your student could indicate any specific questions they have about their essays and/or their goals for our time together. During our session, we will create a plan for the work that should be completed before our next meeting, customized to the needs of the student.
