Jo Doran, Ph.D., M.F.A.

Assistant Professor & ESL Coordinator, Northern Michigan University


I have created this site to provide my students and other instructors access to course materials, maintain access to information on my tutoring/editing services, implement a space for my professional information, and invite others in the fields of Rhetoric & Composition, ESL, Business Writing and Tutoring to share and discuss related issues.

Please note the inclusion of ESL information: resources, information, research, etc. This section is under construction; thank you for your patience.

As you navigate through this site, I hope you will contact me via email if you would like to correspond about any topic you find interesting here.

Please click on “Professional” for more information about me.

This site is best viewed in Firefox.
