English writing, reading, and grammar are my strengths, as are such foreign languages as German, Spanish and Portuguese; I am also accredited to teach social sciences and history by the State of Florida Department of Education. I have helped students prepare for the English part of ACT/SAT/GRE and GMAT exams. Additionally, I have a master's degree in TESOL education and, over the past three decades, have taught English as a second language on four continents. I also teach math.

English writing, reading, and grammar are my strengths, as are such foreign languages as German, Spanish and Portuguese; I am also accredited to teach social sciences and history by the State of Florida Department of Education. I have helped students prepare for the English part of ACT/SAT/GRE and GMAT exams. Additionally, I have a master's degree in TESOL education and, over the past three decades, have taught English as a second language on four continents. I also teach math.

I employ an interactive approach that encourages critical thinking and seeks to evoke answers from students. A patient, sincere educator, I try to instill a spirit of adventure and purpose in each tutoring session. My ultimate goal is to awaken a love of learning that turns you into your own teacher.
