I am a Professor at UMass Boston with a Masters in Creative Writing and a Masters in Education. I have a BA in English and History from Colby College. I have taught college essay writing for 2.5 years and college creative writing for 1 year. I've also taught 6th through 12th grade international students. I specialize in the writing and reading of poetry, as well as the writing of college essays, though I am also fit to help with literary analysis and comprehension.
I like writing feedback to students and empowering them as intellectuals and artists. I like having conversations with students that help give us direction.
Professor Morrison is very knowledgeable and will go above and beyond to help a student succeed. If you do not understand a question or premise he will reword it or explain it in a different way until you do. He also leaves extremely helpful comments that show he is actually paying attention to you and your work. Overall Professor Morrison is a great instructor who truly cares about his students and his craft! I have and will suggest his help/classes to anyone who asks!
I've learned the value of listening--getting to know a student by letting them provide me information. I try to enter with feedback at the right moment and not provide so much critique that I stifle or confuse. I try to identify, with students, what they need most.
