About Scott

My unusually broad international experience includes 40 years' overseas residence in over 10 countries. The 29 most recent years were spent teaching EFL in American and local colleges, as well as companies, in Malaysia, Japan, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia and Equatorial Guinea. I have extensive ties and familiarity with European, Japanese, Chinese, Malaysian and Gulf Arabic cultures.

My first master's degree was a specialization in student development in higher education. After that, the second master's was in English as a Foreign Language, out of a linguistics department. Aside from my teaching duties in Asia, Africa and the Middle East, I also lived all over western Europe when I was younger. Still conversational in German, Dutch and Luxembourgish. Prior to teaching I also had a background in print journalism.

I have extensive EFL experience in all skills, and intercultural experience. My print journalism background particularly helps with grammar and writing.

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.

Writing

I have the following academic credentials: BA in print journalism; MA in LInguistics/English as a Foreign Language; and a M.S.Ed. in Student Development in Higher Education.

I've taught classes around the world for 30 years, including Americans here at home, at colleges and companies. I worked as a magazine writer and associate editor before I even went to college.
