Shertok L.

I'm someone who believes in simplicity and industry. A native of Nepal, I've been studying in the US for the last eight years. This May, I'll be graduating from ASU with an MFA in fiction. My thesis is a collection of linked stories about a Nepali family haunted by the past. Eventually, I hope to able to write the stories that will move the readers in some way and teach creative writing at the college level. For the last three years, I've been teaching First-Year Composition (ENG 101 and 102) and Beginners' Fiction (ENG 288) at Arizona State University. Even though I'm technically considered a TA, I've to undertake the entire responsibility of the classes I teach (teaching, grading, etc.). For each composition class, I also hold one-on-one student conferences for two of the three assigned writing projects. In my opinion, learning has to be enjoyable and personal. By enjoyable, I mean finding ways in which students can have some fun while discovering the effective ways to make a strong, substantiated argument. For this purpose, I incorporate movie clips, TED talks, music videos, and other visual aids. And by personal, I mean students must be able to directly relate with what they are learning as opposed to writing papers to pass the class. To achieve this goal, I encourage my students to pick topics that matter to them on a personal level. I discuss how rhetorical skills may be transferred to their majors and employed on a daily basis.

I'd never tire reading great stories. Soccer to me is, as for many of my friends, like a second religion, and Pirlo my current favorite player. I'm also a beginner guitarist, blatantly biased toward fingerpicking. Every once in a while, I close my door, silence my cell phone--and meditate.

Frog Tutoring says

In 2009, Roland Omene, a TCU bio-chemistry graduate, founded Frog Tutoring. The company originated in Fort Worth, TX, and is quickly expanding to cities all over the country. Frog Tutoring was founded under the belief that all students deserve tutoring regardless of age. We believe the first step in successful tutoring is finding the “right” tutor. That is why we only hire the top students and graduates from local colleges in the area. Each one of our well-trained tutors specializes in at least one area of expertise and is eager to aid in the academic success of the students they tutor. Frog Tutors are not just intelligent individuals, but role models who inspire their students to achieve success both academically and personally. - See more at: http://frogtutoring.com/about_us#sthash.ov47ISCO.dpuf
