Many students are intimidated by English as a subject, even though all of us have the innate ability to read, write, and speak. It just takes practice, and a skilled teacher/tutor to give a student the confidence and direction he or she needs to improve. If you are looking for a relaxed, non-judgmental teacher who really enjoys teaching writing and literature, then I would love to be your tutor. I am a retired writing teacher from The University of Akron, Kent State, and Walsh University who taught freshman English composition to thousands of students for over seventeen years. I also have tutored foreign students in conversational English at the Berlitz Language Center.
