My background includes twenty years as a volunteer tutor in a variety of subjects in the classrooms of my three children (now all grown).

My most rewarding experience was with a Bosnian refugee who could barely speak English when she was in the third grade. When she stopped me in the grocery store the year she graduated from high school to tell me (in flawless English) how much she appreciated the time I spent with her, all we could do was to share a misty-eyed hug to celebrate the moment.

Whether it's math, English, or other primary and secondary subjects, I challenge myself by creating games and other pleasurable pastimes that subtly incorporate fundamental skills that encourage kids to like to learn. For advanced students of English, I bring to the study table a lifetime of editing, proofreading, literary and analytical knowledge.
