Christine's Teaching Style & Approach
How do you present material to students?
People are sometimes surprised that they have to write in my classes!
I use a lot of writing exercises, plenty of handouts and examples, and answer questions.
I tailor the class to the needs of the students, so it's never exactly the same twice.
How you interact and work with students?
My classes are a combination of lecture, writing exercises, and small group discussion.
What kind of classroom dynamic do you promote?
I try to create a fun, positive, welcoming environment. I'm also known for bringing chocolate or homemade cookies.
The class was interactive. The instructor was engaging. I took home many tips and gained some skills to make my editing better. -- Lindsay Orlowski, Proofreading: Review of Common Writing Errors
