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.
