All about Nonfiction Texts
Analyzing stories can be such a useful tool not just academically, but in daily and personal life as well! Literature provides perspectives of humanity we may think we are foreign to, only to realize the universal emotions they can evoke from us. Reading with in-depth analyses can nurture our empathic skills, and in this course, we will focus on how to analyze the American novel, The Catcher in the Rye.
English Tutor and Medical Student
Hello, and welcome! My name is Negeen, and I can’t wait to be your instructor! I’m Iranian-American and originally from Montana, but moved to Dubai in high school. I received my BA degree in anthropology from UC Berkeley, then started medical school in Cyprus. I transferred back to the States where I am completing my medical studies as an aspiring psychiatrist. As you can see, I have been privileged to travel a lot, and my journeys have shaped my interests. The English language and English literature have always been passions of mine. Throughout my academic career, I have gained a lot of experience as an English and ESL tutor for students of all ages. I believe students learn most effectively when they realize they can utilize the skills they are taught in their own lives, which usually comes from an enjoyable and creative learning experience. It is my goal to provide that for you!
