I have been tutoring, lecturing, and leading seminars for more than a decade. I have a wealth of experience, having taught conversational English (to both children and adults) in rural Poland, independent studies in social theory, and sociolinguistics at a top-rated research university, and hundreds of lectures, seminars, and discussion-classes on a wide range of social-scientific, philosophical, and linguistic topics, as a full-time professor at one of this country's finest liberal arts colleges.
I gave up my most recent academic job to write full-time; today, that book--which will also serve as my Ph.D. dissertation in Anthropology and Linguistics--is nearing completion, and I find myself missing the classroom, missing students, missing the activity of teaching.
Obviously, my true expertise is in and around the area of the social sciences, social theory, philosophy, and linguistics (I have graduate degrees in the Social Sciences, Linguistics, and Anthropology), but, given my considerable experience and extensive academic background, I am an effective tutor and teacher in any number of areas, including English as a second language, study and research skills, English grammar, vocabulary, reading and writing (from the remedial, or introductory, level focused on the basics of grammar, to college or
graduate level, focused on complex composition, genre, and style).
Whatever specific topic, discipline, or skill is under discussion, and whether I am teaching one student at home or fifty students in a classroom, I really only do one thing; I help students to become better students--more productive readers, researchers, and writers, and, most important, more careful, and more critical, thinkers.
Get in touch; let's see if I have something to offer you.
