I've taught college writing courses and written thousands of grammar exercises for several major textbook publishers. I'm also an expert test-taker and the parent of a high-school student, and I can help you (or a student you care about) become better prepared for the verbal portions of pre-college...

I'm a fan of clear, effective writing in many contexts, and as the lead development editor of a well-known college writing textbook franchise for 10+ years, I put my knowledge to work daily. I've taught college writing courses and written thousands of grammar exercises for several major textbook publishers. I'm also an expert test-taker and the parent of a high-school student, and I can help you (or a student you care about) become better prepared for the verbal portions of pre-college aptitude and achievement tests.

Many years of language-learning struggles of my own have given me firsthand experience with the frustrations of mastering a new language--I work regularly with a tutor myself and understand the need to help students find intrinsic motivation for learning. I am certified by TESOL International as a teacher of English to speakers of other languages.
