Community Service Learning

While at Oakland University, I spent five semesters teaching WRT 320: Peer Tutoring in Composition at the Baldwin Center in Pontiac, MI.  There, as part our normal coursework, we tutored low income and minority children and adolescents.  In the past, I also partnered with the Macomb Literacy Partners and Detroit Reads.
