Award winning author gives English lessons in writing and poetry to boost creativity

Methodology

Writing is a skill, just like playing the piano or learning how to type. Together we can figure out how to master it. My teaching consists of technical and creative exercises, discussion, feedback, and practice, practice, practice. The focus will be on creative writing, either prose or poetry.

Background

I have degrees in Biology and Social Work, but my primary love is books. I love reading them and recently I have started writing them. I have published two books and am working on my third one. I have peformed poetry and done book readings across India and America.
