Dear Students and Parents:

I began working at the British Institute in 1989, shortly after moving to Stockholm from the United States. I have taught English at different levels, offering tailor-made courses for individuals and groups, specializing mostly in working with business executives and technicians in the telecommunications field. I have translated, edited and proofread documents, manuals, presentations and speeches for Ericsson in Stockholm and the American Embassy, among others. I have also prepared students for Cambridge Certificate Exams through adult education programs in Stockholm. After teaching for many years in Stockholm, I went back to school to earn a certificate/degree in nursing, and I have worked in healthcare and social services from 2003 to 2012. I also earned TEFL’s International Teaching Certificate and taught abroad in Greece and Malaysia during this period.

In addition, I have some experience with Public Relations, both in Washington, D.C. and Stockholm, including work with the American Embassy/Stockholm in 1992. Upon graduating from the University of Maryland at College Park with a B.S. in Journalism, I interned at Gray and Company Public Communications International in Washington, D.C., and then secured a full-time position with Public Affairs Satellite Systems as Stations Relations Manager in 1986.

I speak Swedish fluently and I am a dual citizen of the United States and Sweden. Additional references are available.

I look forward to meeting you!

Sincerely,

James
