I am a teacher, writer, editor and educator with nearly two decades of experience. I hold New York State certification to teach English and Social Studies, and ITTT certification to teach English as a Foreign Language (TEFL).

I recently taught English reading, grammar and writing skills to fifth grade-level students in preparation for state exams, at a prep school in Flushing, NY. I have taught several hundred online English classes, primarily to Chinese students, Levels 2-12. I taught English and Social Studies in New York City schools.

I have a bachelor's degree in English from York University, a master's in Public Administration from New York University and thirty graduate credits in teaching from Columbia University Teachers College and City College of New York. In addition, I have three years' bilingual consulting experience in Central America. I am fluently bilingual in English and Spanish, and reading comprehension of French and Portuguese. I am currently studying Mandarin Chinese.

I can make learning English fun - even exciting. Students will learn perfect grammar and pronunciation, and really understand the language. I can also teach clear and effective English writing. And if you need help preparing for tests - IELTS, SAT, etc. - I'm a good source for coaching and intensive lessons.

I can be available on 24 hours notice, with flexible hours, online anywhere via Skype. In-person tutoring is available in the NYC area.

Knowledgeable, patient, professional and a pleasure to work with

Dee helped my daughter prepare for a Global mid-term after she has missed a lot school due to an illness. Dee was patient and engaging. He made me want to listen in on whatever topic he was talking about! His enthusiasm for the subject is contagious. Needless to say my daughter felt confident going into the exam. We will definitely work with him again.
