Bio

I've worked variously as a private tutor, test-prep instructor, ESL teacher, and university lecturer since 2006. in 2018 I obtained my PhD in Linguistics from the University of Hawaii, and have worked as a professional language researcher ever since. In my research I travel to the jungles of Papua New Guinea and Indonesia to document and analyze the grammar of unknown indigenous languages. My work requires constant analytical thinking as well as a deep engagement with language. I love helping...

I've worked variously as a private tutor, test-prep instructor, ESL teacher, and university lecturer since 2006. in 2018 I obtained my PhD in Linguistics from the University of Hawaii, and have worked as a professional language researcher ever since. In my research I travel to the jungles of Papua New Guinea and Indonesia to document and analyze the grammar of unknown indigenous languages. My work requires constant analytical thinking as well as a deep engagement with language. I love helping students improve their critical thinking skills.

As a published author, I have lots of experience with every stage of the writing process. I've also lived and worked abroad in South Korea, Indonesia, Greece, and Germany, so I'm very familiar with the challenges of learning new languages. I'm happy to teach English at any level, from ESL to SAT- or GRE-prep, to graduate-level thesis-writing. Whatever your level and whatever your goals, I'm here to help! :)

I'm currently accepting new online students. Please contact me for more information or to schedule a lesson!
