As an adjunct English professor at Diablo Valley College (Pleasant Hill, CA) I have worked with students of varying backgrounds and skill levels. I have a BA in Literature, an MA in English, and an MFA in creative writing.
As someone who struggled with English in middle school and high school, I hate a one size fits all approach to teaching English. I not only believe in meeting individual students where they are, I believe in supporting their unique voices.
