Kevin Cassell
Graduate Teaching Instructor

I'm a PhD candidate in Rhetoric and Technical Communication at Michigan Technological University. I teach undergraduate courses in composition and technical, professional and scientific communication. I have also served as a Coordinator for the Composition Program and assistant to the Writing Program Director (2010-12) and as President of the Graduate Student Government (2012-13). I am currently the assistant editor of the academic journal Women & Language.

In addition to Michigan Tech, I've taught at the University of Maine, Northeastern University, the Art Institute of Boston at Lesley University, and the University of New Mexico.

Internationally I taught at Amakusa Senior School in Kumamoto, Japan; the Fiji College of Advanced Education; the Colegio Internacional de Caracas, Venezuela; and Inlingua International Language Center in San Jose, Costa Rica.  

My primary teaching areas include multimodal composition, academic writing, technical and professional writing, English as a Second Language, and American literature.  I've also taught public speaking, film theory and criticism, history of ideas, dramatic arts, introductory linguistics, and general humanities courses.

I hold a BA in English (1986) from the University of Maine at Fort Kent and an MA in English (1989) from Northeastern University in Boston. I also received my TEFL certification (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) from Maximo Nivel Language Center in San Pedro, Costa Rica (2007). I expect to complete my PhD by summer 2014.
