Dear Student:

My name is Peter Jones. I recently retired as Senior Research Scientist in the pharmaceutical industry here in Cambridge, MA. I am now a Sea Kayaking Instructor and Guide in the summers and I teach EFL/ESL when I am not taking clients on kayaking trips.

I was born in the United Kingdom and have spent most of my adult life in the US. I am married with two adult children.

I have had experience in teaching English as a Foreign Language and English as a Second Language to adults, young and older, from beginner to advanced and I'm certified to teach both EFL and ESL. I focus on an a thorough initial assessment of a student's capabilities to customize and personalize their lesson plans. There should be very little 'start-up' time for the student to begin learning spoken and/or written English right away. I see continuous assessment of the student's skill level and creative feedback to the student as being the keys to effective teaching.

I look forward to being your tutor.

Peter

Writing

I have a Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry/Pharmacology and a Masters degree in Zoology and had a 25-year career in pharmaceutical research. I recently retired as a Senior Research Scientist with Vertex Pharmaceuticals in Cambridge, MA. I wrote a Masters thesis which was published in the American Journal of Zoology and I have had published several research papers in biomedicine and co-wrote a book chapter on cancer therapy. I have written numerous internal corporate proposals and reports. I have taught students at the undergraduate level and I have used my writing and mentoring skills throughout my career. I believe that my background and professional life experience qualifies me to tutor and teach writing.
