I have always had an interest in teaching English and business subjects. Over the years, I have helped a number of high school and college students in my social circles with term papers in topics ranging from English to science, including accounting and business.

As a senior in high school in my native country I was often asked to teach English to the lower high school grades in a teacher's absence. I graduated with a distinction in English and English Literature having passed the Cambridge University (UK) exams. I also graduated class valedictorian of my high school two years ahead of the average student. My high school counselor urged me to to study English and Literature as I have a talent for this subject area but instead I chose business with a heavy emphasis on research and psychology, marketing.

Later and post college, I was asked to teach at my college alma mater as tutor of marketing management, having successfully and the only student to have succeeded to complete certain subjects at the first sitting with a high grade. During the year I taught and tutored, I was able to tutor 19 students in addition to my full time job as the Corporate Marketing Officer of a prestigious insurance company. Sixteen of those students successfully completed this examination.

I have a number of college credits in English Literature and writing outside of the scope of the requirements for my degree. I was encourage by several of my professors in my US college career to consider studying English and history. My former professor, Dr. Grace Shulman, Editor of the New Yorker and other English professors urged me to attend Stony Brook but unfortunately my personal responsibilities could not support this venture.

This flair for the English language has helped tremendously in my career as an accounting professional. It is interesting that these positions require excellent written and oral communication skills. I have hired a number of immigrants where English was a second language and was able to assist them to perform extremely well both in accounting and improving the content of their delivery of language to succeed in their jobs and their new country.

As an immigrant with only one language, English, I recognized the richness of multiple languages as well as the importance of fluency of written and spoken English in this country. I also realized many years ago that a number of college graduates had the theoretical knowledge but could not apply this theory in the practical business environment. I have been very successful in tutoring these persons where they have often succeeded in fulfilling their potential. Despite the difficulty of a topic, I will find a way to communicate the material in an easy to understand method. My style of teaching is collaborative rather than professorial.

I think this would a wonderful opportunity to assist the next generation to find the joy and interest in learning as I have.
