Alongside working both as a writing center consultant and tutor for years, both paid and volunteer work, I hold a BA in English and Interdisciplinary Studies from the University of Montevallo as well as an MA in English from Tulane University. In addition, I hold a CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) and have some experience teaching pre-intermediate and upper-intermediate English language learners. With learners, I make a point of us working together to see what needs the most improvement for the sake of our shared work in learning. I would be happy to help you improve your English language use!

About Donovan C.

I am a writer. I graduated from the University of Montevallo with my BA in English and Interdisciplinary Studies in May 2019 and, this past December 2020, received my MA in English from Tulane University. Recently, I received my Cambridge Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA).

My experience includes working as an English language and literature tutor with TRIO Upward Bound, both in terms of volunteer and paid work. In addition, during my undergraduate studies, I worked as a writing consultant in the Harbert Writing Center at the University of Montevallo. Working toward my CELTA certification, I gained teaching experience working with both pre-intermediate and upper-intermediate learners.

I love working with learners, collaborating in the learning process together, as it is my passion. I am excited about meeting you and sharing in our learning through collaboration and communication!
