With a degree in English Literature I have studied English and British Literature my entire academic career. I know how to help you confidently navigate and come to a more complete and nuanced understanding of what you are reading, the main morals/motifs of the piece, and inspire you to develop your own bold and unique opinions on what you are studying or reading.

I have a BA in Humanities which I completed through a combination of film, literature, and language courses. I have studied and written on works from a variety of cultures and have presented/published my work with film and language. I have an MA in teaching English as a second language and am therefore experienced working with students of all ages. I am looking forward to exploring the inspiring world of literature with you!

If there is a particular author or work that you wish to work on, we can of course accommodate. For a class representative of World Literature, a nominal lesson plan might include Poe's "The Raven" and "The Tell Tale Heart" (American Lit), Shakespeare (one play and one sonnet, for English Lit), Shikibu's "The Tale of Genji" (Japanese), and Cervantes' "Don Quixote". We will look at excerpts from these books and discuss what sets them apart from their contemporaries.
