About Carl

I am a retired physician who has developed an interest and expertise in teaching English to speakers of other languages. For the past 3-4 years I have volunteered in ESOL courses held at the Jacob Riis Center in Queens. I am certified in TESOL. I have special expertise in English pronunciation, usage and grammar and have written extensively in medical journals, have an ongoing blog.

I strongly believe that English is best learned in conversation. I focus on having students read appropriate materials with subsequent discussion about the subject matter at hand. I also feel that newly arrived United States residents should acquire knowledge about the history and geography of the country, as well as something about the politics and general "workings" of local, state, and federal government. I feel that this is important, as well as being particularly useful, for those eventually seeking citizenship. I have expertise in tutoring for successful completion of citizenship examinations.

I would be happy to hear from you.
