I am a recently retired high school teacher who has taught English as a Second Language, regular English and social studies for many years. Over the years I have enjoyed working with students from many different ethnic and language backgrounds, including students with learning disabilities.

I have many years of experience teaching ESL in a large high school in Boston, where I worked with students from all over the world. My students came from Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Europe, and they spoke many different languages. I also taught for three years in Zimbabwe, where the official language is English, but where my students spoke several different first languages. I have lived and studied or taught in six different countries in Africa and Europe, and have traveled widely on both continents. I have also traveled in Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean islands. English is my native language, but I also speak French, Spanish and Tshiluba (from the D.R. Congo, and I know a little Portuguese and Haitian Creole. I love working with people from different cultures and language backgrounds, because I have learned a lot from them over the years.
