Harrisonburg & Lancaster Graduate Tutor
I am an English teacher and writer with degrees from the University of Texas and Texas A&M University. I look forward to meeting you and helping you succeed in your writing at EMU. I view writing as an adventure, a quest. We begin with an idea where we want to go and what we want to say (or at least the professor’s assignment). But after we get started and we meet people, gather new information, and discover new ideas, we might feel as if we have lost our way. That is why we need maps, guides, GPS, and tutors. Being a writing tutor allows me to be that person we meet in our travels who can provide directions, models, gentle warnings about what to avoid, and encouragement. At the end of the journey (the writing process), you and I get to admire the wonderful writing you have created. Make an appointment early and often.
