"The Tall English Guy"



I am a PhD candidate at LSU (graduating in August), where I have taught literature, composition, and reading/writing for the past seven years. I have also taught middle and high school social studies and ACT Prep, and I am currently an AP Literature Grader (meaning, every year I go to Kansas City and grade about over 1000 AP essays in a week). I also have articles published in several top-tier academic journals, for what that's worth.

All of this is to say: I think reading, writing, and talking about literature (and film, poetry, etc.) is awesome, and I can help you see how awesome it is too. Moreover, given that I've taught students of varying ages and skill levels, I am confident I can help a wide range of middle, high school, and college students improve their reading, writing, and analytical thinking skills IF they're motivated to do so. Lastly, I am comfortable helping students study for specific tests, such as the AP Literature or Language Test, the ACT, the SAT, the GRE, or the MCAT.
