About Brian

English does not need to be as difficult as many English teachers seem to make it. I have taught English at every level (middle school, high school, and college, including ESL), and I have worked hard to simplify what many have made confusing. Most people are only wanting a basic but effective understanding of grammar and good writing, so I focus on understanding the essentials and practicing good habits. As humans, we identify closely to our language; in fact, we often think of the word itself as the thing itself, especially abstract characteristics and virtues. Therefore, understanding the basics of language has an immediate and significant effect on understanding ourselves, our nature.

I majored in English because I love the art of it, but most of my work has been in service to students who simply want to get beyond it and attain something that is mostly unrelated to English. I understand this, and I try to keep my focus where the student has greatest need and where the greatest improvements can be demonstrated.
