Experienced teacher and tutor of English as a second or other language.

Although I teach and tutor in many areas, the primary area where I have experience is in the field of English as a Second Language. I hold a Master's Degree in Teaching English to Speaker's of Other Languages (another name for E.S.L.), have 6 years experience teaching English in Asia (Shanghai and Taiwan), including time on the faculty of Fudan University, rated as among China's top ten colleges, and two more years experience teaching English as a second or other language in the USA.

I can provide my teacher's evaluations from previous jobs if requested. I am currently going through the Massachusetts teacher certification process to obtain Licensure as an ESL teacher, and always seek opportunities to improve myself as a teacher.

I am also qualified as an English writing teacher or tutor. I am the published author of four books and many magazine articles. My work has been translated into six different languages. I have worked a print journalist, and am a graduate of the Odyssey Writing Workshop, a six week intensive writing workshop that focuses on fiction.

I have also worked as a Test Preparation Tutor and have taught SAT and TOEFL preparation at Tuft's University. I have taken the GRE's twice and received high scores both times.

Should there be a need I can also teach or tutor Chinese history. I am qualified to do this because I earned a master's degree in East Asian Studies from Cornell University with a focus on Chinese history.

Spanish was my minor in college, and I am currently seeking Massachusetts licensure as a Spanish teacher. I have lived in South America and functioned in Spanish speaking environments.

Thanks, I look forward to hearing from you. If you have any questions, please ask.

Good Tutor, Very Flexible — Peter has been tutoring our middle-school aged ESL student for a couple of months now. He has been imaginative in introducing cultural material while discussing grammar and writing. He is also prepared to jettison his planned lesson in favor of working on a homework assignment giving the student trouble. A caring, competent tutor. I heartily recommend Peter. ...
