As a Foreign Service Specialist with the U.S. State Department I have had experience tutoring Swiss foreign nationals in English. My methodology is to reach out to students at their level and build on that with my own expertise.
Having had past experience as a classroom teacher, I have learned that the educational process can be challenging indeed. I am comfortable on a one-to-one basis, being able to see readily the progress a student is making.
Being very much scholastically inclined, I never tire of learning and even pursue continuing education courses when my schedule permits. Learning, for me, is its own reward, the earning of additional degrees not being a necessary ingredient.
After a lifetime of toiling in the world of bureaucracy, I would like now to use my education and talents in the furtherance of the education of others, if not in the classroom, then on a tutorial basis.
