About Alice


Bio

Hi. I am Alice. I earned a B.A. in English from the University of Washington in 1979. Soon thereafter, I earned a master’s degree from the University of Massachusetts, with a concentration in writing instruction. As a college administrator, I “moonlit” teaching seminars in the literature of Virginia Woolf at Georgetown University.More recently, I spent 6 years teaching ESL at the esteemed REEP program in Arlington, VA, followed by ESL teaching at Virginia Tech university.

Hi. I am Alice. I earned a B.A. in English from the University of Washington in 1979. Soon thereafter, I earned a master’s degree from the University of Massachusetts, with a concentration in writing instruction. As a college administrator, I “moonlit” teaching seminars in the literature of Virginia Woolf at Georgetown University.More recently, I spent 6 years teaching ESL at the esteemed REEP program in Arlington, VA, followed by ESL teaching at Virginia Tech university.

I have taught all ages, from 8 years old to mature adults. My tutoring method includes closely monitoring a student’s strengths and weakness. I am nonjudgmental (mistakes are an opportunity to learn!). However, I delight to work with self-motivated students who don’t need to be disciplined, but love learning for its own sake.

My students consistently praise me as friendly and patient. You will see that I expect hard work from you, yet am forgiving rather than critical. I will personalize lessons to your goals and unique learning style. My former students gained confidence in English, improved their skills, and—depending on their goals—were admitted to competitive universities. Because I am fascinated by diverse cultures, I look forward to helping you improve your English skills.
