About Us

We are University lecturers with advanced professional training in teaching writing. We teach writing as a craft, and work with students at all levels of expertise, from those wishing to satisfy the University’s composition requirements, through intermediate writers looking to expand their horizons, to seasoned scribes who want to hone their skills in our upper-division courses.

Our mission is to help you build confidence in your writing and enhance your ability to express rich ideas thoughtfully. Our philosophy of teaching includes small class size, careful attention to building your critical reading and thinking skills along with your writing, personalized attention, and a great deal of practice writing and revising. We’re proud to say that students frequently point to College Writing Programs (CWP) courses and faculty as among the best they’ve had at Berkeley.
