About Guy

I have taught language skills to students from a wide variety of backgrounds for more than thirty years. I have helped both native speakers of English and those for whom English is a second language. Because I have lived abroad myself, I have particular insight into the struggles that students sometimes have when becoming comfortable and fluent in a new language and culture. And having studied and taught languages other than English, I have gained some skills in explaining how language works and how best to understand it.

My years as a teacher have helped me to become patient and flexible when dealing with individual learners. I have a wide variety of techniques and exercises that are both fun and effective. I look forward to meeting new students and helping them to become confident, skilled and effective writers and speakers.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

English

I have a Ph.D. in languages and literature from Stanford University, and have taught at a number of universities, and directed the editing of over 80 scientific journals. I've been working with students for more than thirty years, and have developed a wide variety of techniques that are effective for almost anyone.

I have taught both English and other languages for more than thirty years, and have worked with hundreds of students from all over the world. I am friendly and easy to work with, but effective, and I won't waste your time. If you're looking for a tutor who can really help you, give me a call.
