I am a University at Buffalo writing instructor, tutor, and editor. My specialties are: English - writing composition, grammar, and editing; ESL instruction - writing, reading, and speaking; Job preparation; resume/cover letter/interview process; and, Test preparation - TOEFL, GED and SAT Writing. In addition to teaching courses at the University at Buffalo, I am a certified Career and Life Coach.

My background is quite diverse. I am a former ENG 101 and ENG 201 professor for the University at Buffalo. I am currently tutoring college and middle/high school students in writing and AP English, and young students in ELA. I also tutor non-native speakers (ESL) in writing and speaking. In this capacity, I provide instruction on pronunciation, word order and verb tense. I assist non-native speakers in improving their communication (conversation) skills and in mastering the American accent.

I have extensive experience editing dissertations, thesis papers, published research articles, proposals, and resumes. My ESL experience is also quite extensive, and many of the clients I have assisted are accomplished professionals.

During my 20+ years of teaching, I have worked with students of all ages. I have assisted students in preparing for New York State exams and TOEFL. As a result, my students have received excellent scores. I provide a creative and interesting approach to teaching and to tutoring. My philosophy is to make learning interesting, not mundane.
