I can do the "chalk and talk" style or a very hands-on, playful approach. In language teaching, I believe in making it WORK! (like in real life). In literature and film, I draw analogies and help students discover how much they ALREADY know, from myth, and children's literature. For writing, I believe in multiple rewrites. Above all, to write well requires reading good writing.

For speakers of European languages, my familiarity with many of them enhances my ability to teach fine points of English.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Anthropology

My undergraduate degree is in anthropological linguistics. I have an MA in Comparative Linguistics & Literature including literature of French & English-speaking colonies. I have lived, studied, worked and traveled world-wide, and I know deeply the cultures, religions and modern history of the Middle East and Europe. I am also a student of the problems of modernization especially in the context of colonialism.
