Teaching Experience

Teaching Experience
I have been tutoring writing at Hofstra University for nine months now. I've helped over 60 students develop their writing skills, many of whom are English Second Language students or struggle with Standard Academic English. I also lead a creative writing workshop at Hofstra University, where I play a similar role in helping students develop their creative writing skills.
