Edna Zwick Boris's Statement:
Since 1974 I have taught in the English Department at LaGuardia Community College, where I received the title of Professor of English in September 1996. In addition, I am the founding director of WordsWorth Associates, which provides writing skills programs for attorneys and other business professionals in the United States and in Europe. I have published one book and numerous articles in 3 areas: on Shakespeare, on the teaching of writing, and on legal writing.

Education :
-Ph.D. in English literature; Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana

-M.A. in English; Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana

-B.A. magna cum laude; Hunter College, City University of New York

My goals are to help students become independent; to enable them to acquire or reinforce the knowledge, techniques, and methods they need for reading, researching, and writing intelligently. In all courses we spend some time in computer labs learning how to use technology for researching, writing, and generally preparing for careers in whatever field.
