PhD in Comparative Literature gives lessons in literary analysis, reading, and writing to middle school, high school, and college or university students in the Des Moines, IA area.

Methodology

Hello! My name is Brent, and I’d like to tell you a little about myself.

After getting my BA in Spanish and Anthropology, I went on to get an MA and a PhD from the University of Wisconsin in comparative literature (with a PhD minor in Spanish).

I have taught or tutored students in literature courses, writing, reading, ESL, and Spanish at all levels (from elementary to University).


Background

During graduate school, I led discussion sections for large lecture-style literature courses. It was during this time that I discovered how much I loved teaching and helping students with their writing.

As I was finishing up my dissertation, I began volunteering as an ESL instructor. Since receiving my PhD in 2016, I have continued to work with ESL learners and special needs students in high school classrooms while also teaching online ESL classes to English learners in China.

Brent's CV

In addition to teaching, I continue to write, and have published numerous translations (from Spanish into English) in Patagon Journal and have written original articles for Givology, a nonprofit organization committed to improving access to education in the developing world.
