My approach to teaching writing is 1) making it as collaborative as possible and 2) making it just as exciting. There is no "right" way to write, and I want to empower young writers to explore and strengthen their voices. There is of course structural discipline, especially in academic writing, that I enjoy teaching. But I do not let the rules bog me or my students down--I don't let them forget that at the end of the day, writing is simply the art of expressing yourself.
I specialize in three "categories" of study: creative writing, analysis of texts (books, plays, and poems) and academic essay writing, and SAT prep (minus math). Feel free to mix and match!
