Poetry and Short Stories
for English Learners.
ELLiterature is a place to find accessible literature for English learning. I hope to help you improve your fluency and vocabulary and immerse yourself in words and the world of literature.
I specialize in walking people through a text, helping you see what to look for, building vocabulary and fluency while discussing big ideas, and teaching you to trust your responses.

through accessible literature
Browse the collection of short stories, poetry, and creative writing lessons. All texts are chosen for English learners, and all guide you through your reading.
I am, first, a poet and writer, and I teach literature from a creator’s perspective.
I’ve been a teacher for 15 years — in AP literature, at the college level, at universities abroad teaching nonnative speakers of English. I work with adults who want to advance their English and have great conversation while gaining experience with literature and growing speaking and writing skills.
Contact me to set up a trial lesson, and we can talk more about your goals.
