You'll find my approach to your learning English fun, interesting, supportive, and effective. I've taught ESL to high school students in Yaxunah, a Mayan village in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. I've also tutored and taught ESL adult students in Seattle. In sum, I have over 150 hours of classroom and tutoring experience. We'll use your personal interests as a gateway for lessons, conversation, and written exercises. We'll use your favorite learning style to speed up your progress, too.

Building vocabulary that YOU want to remember and use is one of the primary goals we'll work toward. We'll use "sight words" (flashcards) as well as short written exercises to ensure your success. Our sessions will be conducted in English...of course! However, we can use Google Translate as necessary, if you have difficulty in understanding a concept or the meaning of a word.

Let's get started! Contact me today to schedule your first session.

Adobe Photoshop

Since 1997 I've been a Photoshop user and tutor. As a freelance graphic designer I've created and used "Photoshopped" graphics and photographs in published books, on book covers, in brochures, newsletters, on the web, and as stand-alone photographic prints.

80% of the great results you can achieve in Photoshop come from just 20% of the features. I'll show you what those powerful features are, so you'll be producing great looking photos for your projects in no time!


I am a native English speaker and graduate from the University of California, Santa Cruz, 1978.

I achieved from I.T.T.O. online a "high pass" certification for teaching ESL in 2012.

I have over 150 hours of classroom and tutoring experience in ESL/TEFL here in Seattle and in Mexico.


Over 20 years experience using and troubleshooting the Apple/Mac operating system as well as tutoring students in a variety of applications including Adobe Photoshop and Microsoft Office
