About Ron


Bio

I've tutored ESL, German and Spanish on-campus at University of Detroit Mercy (UDM), and at Detroit Public Libraries, private schools and private homes under contract with UDM.

My degree is from Harvard, in Government, but most of my coursework was in German. I have substantial knowledge of French (from course work) and Portuguese (communication with Brazilian friends).

I discover the best talents and greatest needs of the student. I conform the curriculum to the individual student.

I've tutored ESL, German and Spanish on-campus at University of Detroit Mercy (UDM), and at Detroit Public Libraries, private schools and private homes under contract with UDM.

My degree is from Harvard, in Government, but most of my coursework was in German. I have substantial knowledge of French (from course work) and Portuguese (communication with Brazilian friends).

I discover the best talents and greatest needs of the student. I conform the curriculum to the individual student.

I'm the oldest of seven and father of an 11 year old daughter (seen in my photo). At her school, I run volunteer before-school "word scramble" games.

My hobbies include creative writing, sports with my daughter (when I can keep up!), and following her piano lessons. I am a "word nerd" always thinking about languages and how to popularize them.

I am a Harvard graduate who has much experience working with children. I have taught at a public housing project Art Center Day Camp. I am--together with my wife--raising a daughter now in 7th grade and have helped her with homework from the beginning of her schooling. I am the oldest of my parents' seven children, whom I helped with homework. Currently I run the English and Spanish before-school "word scrambles" program at my daughter's Detroit Public School--1st through 4th graders participate.
