Jasper as Teacher

The best way to learn something is to teach it to someone else.

This bit of truth has proven true over and over in my life. I worked for seven years as a California Poet in the Schools. For the last six years I have tutored students in writing through Signet Education. I have taught classes or given lectures at Mendocino College, Wesleyan University, Antioch Los Angeles, and UCLA.

On this website you can listen to my lecture on creative reading, learn my approach to writing the perfect college essay, or ask me for a PDF of my 81-page guide to teaching poetry as a poet.
