Writing clearly and interestingly, and the ability to read challenging materials in English - these skills are so fundamental and so important. They will open many doors to your success. How crucial it is to be clear, to touch other people with ideas, to move them to consider new concepts! Our world needs better communication, and I am eager to help you become a skilled communicator.
My method begins with finding out who you are, learning what you are passionate about. We go from there. Do you love to read but would like to improve your reading comprehension? Can you imagine having a tutor who loves grammar and is able to infect you with his enthusiasm? Would you like to improve your grades? Bottom line, I want what you want, your goals are my goals, and I work really hard to help. I work with a broad range of students and subjects, from study skills to preparing for the SAT, PSAT, ACT, TOEFL and other such tests.
To students of ESL: If you want to speak and listen to English more easily, please contact me. I have helped many become more comfortable using English. Perhaps because of my background in languages and linguistics, I have a very good ear for 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 Language and Literature, 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 towards language mastery.
I live in Shoreline, to the north of Seattle, but I am very flexible and willing to travel.
