About

I am an experienced high school teacher (12-years) turned college professor (6-years) who consistently gets excellent results. I had some of the higest scores in my district and state for the AP Language and AP Art History test. I have taught many different levels of students, from struggling to gifted. I am dedicated, attentive and practically-minded and am excellent at modeling a process-oriented approach. I have a Bachelor's and Master's degree in English, attending both Fordham University and the University of South Florida. See my profile at:

I love helping students to see their potential and to reach their goals while forming relationships in the process. Watching students succeed when they thought they couldn't has been one of the most satisfying parts of my job (and my life).

    I had Ms. Dowling for a total of three classes throughout high school. I got 5s in both of the AP courses I took with her, AP Art History and AP English Language and Composition. She takes the time to get to know all of her students, values them as individuals, and helps them in the areas that are most useful to them. She puts so much thought into her teaching and is open about her thought processes, creating a genuinely supportive environment.

    We hired Ms. Downling for AP Language Arts after my son ended up with a D in the class during the 3rd quarter of the school year. My son only gets poor grades when he fails to turn in assignments and is also very resistant to any type of outside help. She kept him on track with his assignments for the remainder of the school year, and he ended up with a B for the semester. He only got a 2 on the AP exam, but hes more of a math/science kid, and I was not surprised by the 2 particularly since the omitted the multiple-choice portion this year (because of COVID). I would hire her again in a heartbeat!
