I was educated in Scotland and received Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Italy.
I was involved in counseling, education and social work for a number of years in Scotland before teaching English as a Foreign Language in France, in a private College (Ecole Superieure d'Informatique, Montreuil), and in the University of Raspail, Paris).
I have taught in Elementary School in Scotland, and High School in Hawaii, where I was employed by the State of Hawaii Department of Education, as well as the University of Hawaii-Hilo to provide counseling and education to minority and at-risk adolescents. I also counseled adults there including many whose primary language was other than English.
I have always established a good relationship with minority adolescents and adults, and my teaching style is informal but structured: I begin the relationship with the student at the point they are currently at in their understanding and competence, building towards increasing their knowledge and comprehension. My international education and experience has helped me to be very open to individuals from other cultures and background. My English language skills are excellent.
I have more than 15 years experience of working with both adults and adolescents with ADD/ADHD, and have worked under the supervision of a Board-certified psychiatrist and psychologist throughout that time.
My professional experience has also included working with individuals who are dually-diagnosed (co-morbidity), normally dealing with chemical dependency and other diagnoses, including both ADD and ADHD.
For over 20 years, I have counseled and worked with both adolescents and adults who have been dualy-diagnosed (co-morbidity). I have worked under the direct supervision of a Board-Certified psychiatrist who is qualified to make such diagnoses.
I have a Master's degree in divinity (including psychology), and I am a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor (CSAC) which certification assesses the ability to work with individuals who have one or more disabilities.
I have completed classes and training in all of the above disciplines.
