I have a PhD from Michigan State University in English with a special focus on African American Literature and History and Philosophy of Science. I have taught extensively at large research universities and small liberal arts colleges, covering wide ranges of subjects in writing, literary studies, critical theory, and philosophy of science. I am most proud of my work with STEM students, guiding them through writing classes and humanities and helping them make the most of their studies and develop transferable skills in qualitative analysis and written communication. Finding middle ground between different disciplines and skillsets has not only helped me work with a wide variety of students, but help them thrive in many different environments, as they enter industry, graduate school, medical school, or any future goals. Similarly I have a great deal of experience with GRE prep and applications more broadly, synthesizing the work students do in many disciplines into presentations of their skills and aptitudes.
