DEMOI continues

I realize that I have not posted on this website since April. In that time, DEMOI has continued to operate and adjust to the changing circumstances associated with COVID-19. Many of the one-on-one sessions I was conducting with students have moved from in-person to distance learning using digital interface software.

Over the past few months, I have also made a career change and I am now working in the non-profit sector in the field of adult literacy. I am enjoying the work and the learning challenges and opportunities that come with it. I am also very thankful to be gainfully employed during a period that I know is difficult for so many.

I will continue to offer my teaching and tutoring services to those who are looking for a committed educator in the fields of written composition, grammar, social sciences, and the humanities. The work I do in DEMOI remains deeply important to me and staying connected to students and young people, especially at a time like this, is something I feel is a great gift.

I also continue to write and publish and have been updating my publication lists which you can access at the top of the screen.

I wish everyone safety, health, and well-being.
