About Vicki

I've taught English at the Boston School for Modern languages for ten years. I've also tutored privately one on one. I've taught grammar, reading, pronunciation and idioms. I've also helped prepare students for the TOEFL exam. Many years ago I taught an evening course at MIT to business people who wanted to increase their listening skills.

I've authored a book of games specifically for students learning English. It consists of word games, idioms, crossword puzzles, etc. It was published by Dover Publications.

Mostly I enjoy getting to know each student and seeing what that person needs so that we can work together and see progress.

I'm only an outstanding teacher if I listen to the needs of my students. Students are my best teachers. There are two parts to learning English. First you need to understand the parts (verbs, idioms, etc.) and then you need to use these parts in conversation. They must go hand in hand. Rules are only useful if they are used. We can make English fun!

If you think we could work well together, please contact me and we can set up some sessions. I welcome all levels and look forward to hearing from you.
