I specialise in working with university students, but I am more than happy to work with younger students or with people who are not studying for a degree.
- Academic Writing (taught seven introductory courses, Oregon State University, U.S.)
I taught students to analyse an author`s argument, develop a thesis, organise thoughts into paragraphs, conduct library research, cite sources, and more.
- Creative Writing (taught one course, Oregon State University, U.S.)
I guided students to analyse short stories, write their own fiction, and provide constructive feedback on stories written by class mates.
- Business/professional writing (mentored for one year, University of Michigan, U.S.)
I helped students create online portfolios that appealed to potential employers.
I have written professionally for a variety of organisations, producing blog posts, newsletters, grant proposals, and more.
