MY PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND
For the past ten years, I have been working very successfully teaching WyzAnt students aged five to adult. I am an experienced and well-qualified tutor in all aspects of English as well as Literature and History. having more than 8000 hours of teaching with Wyzant. I meet students weekday mornings, afternoons, evenings and weekends. I offer an introductory meeting at no charge to first determine the needs of any new student, and to explain what I provide.

I have a great deal of experience helping children and adults learn to better express themselves, both in writing and speaking. I believe strongly that the successful use of the English language depends on learning to read and write in an organized and intelligent way; the real aim of language use is to be able to communicate well in both.

One reason for being well qualified to help especially children learn English and perfect their language skills is because of my own experience learning English as a second language, years ago, as an immigrant. Long since fluent in English, I spent my younger years raising our four children living in Palo Alto, and then pursued my own University education. I obtained two degrees from San Jose State; a BA in Humanities and an MA in Modern European History; I also obtained two degrees from Stanford University, an MA and a Ph.D. in History of Modern Europe 1648 to the Present. I subsequently worked as a market research analyst, and in the last few years, devoted my time to teach children and adults in English, Literature, and History.

I live in Sunnyvale with my husband and our dog. I teach only at my home because here I have a great variety of teaching materials that I utilize in the course of the lesson whenever it is essential to fill any gap in my students' education as well as in their general knowledge.
