Not many people can say they started out in life to become a writer but instead became a corporate manager. That, however, is my story. I majored in English and Theater in college, then went on to a long career in software development and technology management (20 years). Several years ago, I decided to leave the corporate ranks and to teach communication and leadership to technical professionals, helping them become better communicators (public speaking, business writing).
But my truest love is making language work and helping non-native speakers make this complicated language (English!) work. I also love learning about languages and meeting people who speak different languages. I tailor my lessons to what YOU want to learn—conversation, slang, grammar, vocabulary, academic writing, business writing, public speaking / presentations, or just navigating the grocery store.
I prefer working with adults and almost-adults.
