Congratulations! You have taken the first step to achieving your goals in reading and writing English. The next step we take together. And, since I have lived half my life in the U.S., and the other in England and Europe, I understand the challenges which come with taking on a new or difficult task. It can be both exciting and overwhelming!
With great results, I have tutored in English (literature, writing fiction and nonfiction, SAT/ACT/LSAT and college-prep, and reading comprehension), and law. And, I love what I do!
Educated in the U.S. up to my doctorate in law, my international schooling and teaching includes one year at L'Ecole Normale de Musique in Paris, and post-graduate work at the University of Cambridge (U.K.) At Cambridge, I also taught a course in Shakespeare in Performance.
Through my decades of tutoring/coaching/teaching I have found that the art of tutoring is quite different from classroom teaching, and I prefer working with one, or two, getting and giving immediate inspiration. This was especially true when I taught legal writing on a tutorial basis at Hamline University Law School. (One of my 'tutee's' graduated first in her class.) And, recently, a tutee was accepted into the advanced business program at UW! And, the best teaching comes from experience in the 'real world', where I have been in law, higher education, nonprofit management, and most recently, diplomacy.
The open door policy I have allows family, etc., to be there during the tutorial, with the understanding that the most important person in the room is the one in front of the book or notebook. For that hour, my student is the most special person in the world. Does this sound like you?
I look forward to meeting you.
P.S. Please note that all lessons are held at my home office, which is centrally located and close to major highways. With covered parking should it rain, the coffee/tea is always on! In extreme cases, exceptions may be made to travel.
