Adele Brown is a writer, English composition professor, and private tutor with her Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in English Literature and Writing from the University of Maryland. She teaches composition in the classroom at Montgomery College and online for the University of Maryland Global Campus (UMGC). In both venues, she reviews punctuation and grammar to refine students’ communication skills while she focuses on critical analysis and evaluation of texts so that students become more effective at organizing rhetorical responses to those texts for academic essays.
Adele Brown is also experienced in facilitating students’ research into credible sources for documentation in academic papers. She teaches college documentation formats to include updated versions of APA, MLA, and the new science-oriented CSE. At UMGC, she accomplishes this in the online classroom format, LEO, and she also engages in remote, e-tutoring for students utilizing Google Docs.
Other interests of Adele’s include creative writing, thus she loves teaching poetry writing workshops for elementary and middle school students in Maryland through the Maryland State Arts Council and has done so for years. She is the author of two full-length books of poetry, Freshwater Pearls, and The Moon Lighting, and she published a book of poetry writing workshops for young people, Look Ma, “Hands” on Poetry.
When not teaching and writing, Adele Brown enjoys reading (yes, poetry), concerts, old Hitchcock movies, and attending “The Bard’s” plays at the Washington Shakespeare Theater.
