About Jeffrey

I am currently employed as a writing instructor at Loyola Marymount University, where I am studying for my master's in English with a concentration in Creative Writing. I also have extensive experience teaching English as a Second Language. Prior to moving to Los Angeles, I lived in Japan for 12 years, working as an instructor of English at a private university. I hold a certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages from the University of California, Riverside Extension. I also worked extensively as a private tutor in Japan, helping several clients over the years improve their English speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills. As a teacher, this is the kind of one-on-one work I live for. I excel at providing simple explanations on points of grammar, syntax, and pronunciation, and really love digging in for intensive practice in these areas. I take pride in the fact that every one of my private ESL students showed marked improvement in their English language ability after only a few weeks of work.

I can also assist native English speakers with any kind of writing or literature help, or verbal skills test prep. Prior to enrolling at LMU I achieved a perfect score on the verbal section of the Graduate Record Exam (GRE), and have in the past helped students with the verbal sections of the SAT and GED tests. As a writing instructor at LMU, I am trained and practiced in providing one-on-one writing instruction, and I am an expert editor and proofreader who can help students with essays and creative assignments alike. I enjoy working with children of all ages as well as adults. Reading and writing the English language is my passion and my full-time occupation, and I look forward to helping you improve in your English language endeavors.
