What?! You do not like to write???? We need to talk. I promise you: within one year, words will be like chocolate in your mouth! Sentences will be like the best sandwich you ever constructed. Ideas will start to feel like an adventure.
Do you get stopped for no clear reason when you are in the middle of reading a book that clearly is a book you want to read? I can teach you skills to get you beyond your fears. Do you want to connect with other people by your ideas? Our world needs you: the person in the group with "better communication."
I begin by finding out who you are. What do you love doing? Would like to improve your reading comprehension? Can you imagine the possibility of enjoying grammar? It can happen. Would you like to improve your grades? Bottom line, your goals are my goals. I work with all motivated students and subjects from study skills to test prep, and every one of them starts to taste the satisfaction of better communication.
If ESL is a problem, and if you want to speak and listen to English more easily, I can help. Perhaps because of my background in languages and linguistics, I am good at helping students with pronunciation, and also grammar, which is a key to clear and powerful communication.
Professionally, I have both a B.A. and an M.A. in English, with years of experience teaching writing, grammar, and literature in a community college.
I can provide a model, an inspiration and the discipline to guide you.
I live in Shoreline, but I am very flexible and willing to travel.
