Bio

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...

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!
