About the course

This course is designed to address some of the common misunderstandings of Turabian format (also known as Chicago style). Hopefully, after the course you will no longer need to be as focused on achieving proper Turabian format, because the formatting will come naturally! Once we are better able to understand the formatting, we are free to focus our efforts on clearly communicating our thoughts and ideas to our audience, and most importantly, having fun while writing!

Hi, I’m Josiah! I’ve been enjoying helping students in areas of writing, English, and communication for four years now. I am a native of Virginia, where I obtained my undergraduate degree in international relations with a focus in public policy and Modern Standard Arabic. I received my Advanced TESOL certification (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) this past year, and I am currently working toward my Masters of Public Administration. As my full-time job, I have been working for the US House of Representatives for approximately one year now. As one has attempted to learn another language (Latin, Arabic, German, and Spanish), I have grown in my appreciation for patience in learning and in teaching. That has inspired my passion for helping others understand English and enjoy the thrill of learning!
