Wisdom in teaching begins with the realization that most people learn in ways that suit them personally. The trick is to find a comfortable match between the learner and the goal. When I was younger I was a Montessori teacher; and that experience has marked my college teaching and my tutoring with adults. I've lived abroad in Naples and farther north on the far side of the Alps, and am often mistaken as a native speaker of Italian or German by Italians and Germans. My advanced degrees are in sociology and psychology, which I've taught at the University of Illinois and elsewhere. I'm easy to work with: down-to-earth, supportive. I'd be happy to give you a hand.
