I teach theatre and creativity at Temple University, Rowan University, and Stockton University. As a mentor of creative artists and scholars, I love helping students to develop skills and practices that allow them to communicate and organize their ideas in the strongest, most effective ways.
So many intelligent students haven't mastered the techniques required for academic writing. It's something that all instructors in higher education struggle with. Fortunately, anyone can learn how to take ideas and sculpt them into a compelling, concise, and elegant paper. As someone who grades dozens of essays every week, I'm excited to help you develop writing abilities that will help you in virtually all of your academic coursework.
Need help with that college application essay? I would love to sit down with you and not only make sure that your submission is error-free, but also give you ideas for generating creative content that expresses your unique story in a way that will catch the eye of your target institution.
My passion is helping students learn to create, to generate solid and perhaps groundbreaking work. Regardless of your field, the ability to communicate your ideas will free you to maximize your potential.

What is your teaching philosophy?
Growing up, 4H was a huge influence in my life. The 4H slogan is "Learn by doing." I believe strongly in this pedagogy. Trying and failing is the most productive way many of us learn, provided we are able to analyze the mistakes and successes we've made.
