I've tutored ESL, German and Spanish on-campus at University of Detroit Mercy (UDM), and at Detroit Public Libraries, private schools and private homes under contract with UDM.
My degree is from Harvard, in Government, but most of my coursework was in German. I have substantial knowledge of French (from course work) and Portuguese (communication with Brazilian friends).
I discover the best talents and greatest needs of the student. I conform the curriculum to the individual student.
I'm the oldest of seven and father of an 11 year old daughter (seen in my photo). At her school, I run volunteer before-school "word scramble" games.
My hobbies include creative writing, sports with my daughter (when I can keep up!), and following her piano lessons. I am a "word nerd" always thinking about languages and how to popularize them.
