I love the process of helping someone find and effectively communicate the best of what they have to say. Part of my responsibility here is to help you determine your subject and then develop and clarify your thoughts, so that your essay represents the uniqueness and sophistication of those thoughts. I then strive to help you express yourself in succinct English in an essay constructed to engage your readers.
All of my professional work has been in the service of education: first for two decades as a teacher of high school and college English, when I was privileged to teach across genres and periods, in multiple contexts, and with diverse populations; and now when I use what I have learned about teaching and learning--both from my students and from my eight years engaged in the art and business of online education--as a freelance course developer, instructional designer, and course author.
For over two decades, I have helped students produce multiple kinds of writing required at various stages in their academic careers. I'm prepared to guide and support you while you write to gain entrance into programs and institutions, as well as while you pursue publication in academic journals. I'll help you wherever you need assistance, from finding the right word, to structuring a strong sentence, to building paragraphs into an essay. I'll also help you develop your ideas, to extend and deepen them, and then to present them in an illuminating and relevant statement, essay, or other document that distinguishes you from others.
As an essay-writer myself, I have taken a particular interest in teaching the essay to my students over the years. A personal essay is not only an important component of most applications; it’s also an opportunity to achieve more self-knowledge and to organize your experience into a coherent statement about who you are and what matters to you. In the context of an application, the personal essay should illustrate that you are a maturing, engaged citizen of the community in which you are aiming to participate. My goal will always be to help you realize that goal, to support you as you decide on content and then organize and express that content with eloquence and clarity.
我喜欢帮助别人探寻可以表达他们观点的最佳方式。 我的职责之一就是帮助你确认主题， 同时让你的表述更加清晰明了，让读者从你的文书中可以看到你的独特思维。
所有我的个人职业经理都和教育密切相关：20年高中大学英语教学经验让我有机会给各种学生教授各种类型题材的内容；现在我正在充分利用学到的这些从业敬业—从我的学生身上以及8年在线教育经历—让我成为了一个课程研发人员， 教学方法设计师， 以及一个教学材料编辑。
我帮助学生修改过多个学术阶段所需要的写作材料。 我不仅可以在申请文书方面提供帮助， 同时在学术期刊发表方面我也可以帮助你。无论你在什么方面需要帮助，我都可以帮助你， 小到词汇的选择， 句子的构造 ，大到到段落的整合。 同时我也能帮助你发散思维， 深度挖掘当中的亮点， 然后帮助你用精妙的语句表达出来从而让你有别于其他人。
作为一个自由作家， 对于教授别人写作这件事我乐在其中。 个人陈述不仅是你申请中非常重要的一换， 同时也是一个机会让你可以总结你的自我认知，各人经历以及未来人生规划。在你的个人陈述中，你需要展示你为了改变现在这个世界而努力。我的存在就是为了帮助你决定什么样的材料应该被放到文书中， 如何清晰明了的表达整合这些内容。

Maria Irene Fornes: Theater in the Present Tense
Diane MoroffUniversity of Michigan Press
The work of Maria Irene Fornes, author of such acclaimed plays as Fefu and Her Friends, Mud, and The Conduct of Life, has for over three decades earned the attention of theater-goers, scholars and critics. She has won eight Obie awards, has provoked considerable controversy, and has consistently challenged and delighted the reader and spectator with her idiosyncratic voice and her serious and yet profoundly playful approach to the theater and to the issues of humanity, gender politics, and art.
Diane Lynn Moroff focuses on Fornes's major plays, providing illuminating readings of her unique and irreverent body of work. The book traces the career of this influential playwright, director, and teacher, including the reception of her plays, the range of critical responses (particularly those of feminist critics), and an introduction to Fornes's theatrical philosophies. It looks at such critical issues in Fornes's work as the representation of female subjectivity, theater as metaphor and context, art as ritual, and the role of the spectator. In a final chapter, Fornes's plays including Abingdon Square and her most recent work, What of the Night? are examined in the context of the sexualization of character, an ongoing theme for Fornes.
Fornes: Theater in the Present Tense will appeal to scholars and students in theater studies and women's studies and to anyone interested or engaged in contemporary theater.
