I scored 98% on the verbal section of the GMAT. My undergraduate and graduate GPA was 3.8. I was on the Dean's Honor List, a Weatherhead Enrichment Scholar and a member of the Beta Gamma Sigma Honor Society for Collegiate Schools of Business. I am a university faculty member with over 20 years of experience teaching, training and tutoring.

I have taught and tutored intermediate and advanced English as a second language in several countries. I help my students with reading, speaking and writing. I am particularly supportive of students' efforts to improve their English because I know what it is like to learn a foreign language as an adult.

I can help you learn English, if that is your goal. I would be glad to help you with preparation for the verbal portion to tests such as the ACT, CBEST, GRE, GMAT, LSAT, MCAT, PSAT, SAT, SSAT, etc. If you want help with career development I can help you with resume writing, job search techniques and interviewing skills.

The following is a comment from one of my students:
"Thank you for a wonderful class. I'll miss your teaching style, personality and knowledge on an interesting subject. Your efforts and passion for the subject matter was appreciated."
