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.
