Kit's Bio & Tutoring Experience

I began teaching academic writing as a graduate student at East Carolina Univerisity. Since I left ECU, I have lived in several different countries, working as an academic English teacher in both native and non-native English environments. In Prague, Czech Republic, I taught English as a Second Language as well as journalism and creative writing. In working with and writing for non-native speakers, I developed a greater appreciation for writing in English and the importance of context and purpose in writing. I am working on a PhD in cultural studies through Charles University, Prague.

In Australia and New Zealand, I taught academic and persuasive writing in both face-to-face classes and online. In addition to these, as well as cultural studies courses for native and non-native English-speaking undergraduates, I also taught post-graduate non-native speakers in the Queensland University of Technology International College and Central Queensland University; these students had been accepted into graduate programs in business and the hard sciences, but needed to upgrade their English-language writing skills in order to fulfill class assignments. The knowledge I gained about cross-cultural communication has helped me better understand and appeal to the differences between student learning styles, even in native English speakers.

In 2014, I returned to Greenville, NC, and have been teaching as an adjunct at ECU and local community colleges.
