With more ten years of experience as university instructor, I have worked with a wide variety of both both native and nonnative English speakers in areas such as English grammar, composition, reading, writing, public speaking, and listening skill development. As a lifelong learner in languages, I am also fluent in German (I used to live there), and with more than ten years of study in Latin, I would be happy to work with beginning students who wish to tackle a language that will certainly increase their knowledge of English, as well as give them a strong foundation for learning other languages.
I have worked as an instructor for Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Tufts University, University of Washington, Boston University, and several community colleges. I don't rely on institutional "methods" such as rote learning or drill sheets, but instead write my own materials incorporating art, music and theater into learning plans. Above all, I truly apply humor into the learning process.
I look forward to meeting you and would be happy to arrange a free 30 minute session to access individual needs and working styles!

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.
Having taught advanced English writing classes in major U.S. research universities in addition to many years of English as a Second Language (ESL) teaching, I am highly qualified in all aspects of English instruction.
My instructional background includes 5 years of advanced English instruction for Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Tufts University, Boston University, and the University of Seattle, in addition to 7 years in community college ESL programs.
I have designed and delivered over 100 courses in English writing, grammar, reading, speaking, listening, and pronunciation using a wide variety of instructional methods.
Over 13 years of experience teaching ESL to students ages 16 to 70+ in community college basic studies programs, university bridge programs, and in matriculated student programs (i.e., Tufts University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology). Particular expertise is in composition, pronunciation, academic reading/vocabulary, speaking, and grammar.
I have studied German throughout High School and college, and received an international scholarship to study at the University of Bonn after my undergraduate degree. Additionally, I have taught English to foreign students for over 10 years, and these techniques readily apply to any language instruction.
