Q. How do I cite my instructor in APA style?
Last Updated: Nov 04, 2014     Views: 65

According to APA style, this would be considered a "personal communication," much like an email.  In the body of your paper, you may use a parenthetical citation such as (B. Johnson, personal communication, November 15, 2010).  The personal communication does not need to be listed on the References page.
