I've recently returned to the US from 26 years of living and working in West Africa. I've been tutoring students since I was in graduate school in the 1980's. I've been a classroom teacher at various levels for over 20 years.

I am certified by both New York and New Jersey in secondary biological sciences, and I have extensive experience in ESOL and TOEFL preparation. I teach other subjects outside of my certification as well (technical, research, interdisciplinary and multicultural). I am bilingual in English and French and can teach in either language.

I have worked with students from the primary (CE2: French 3rd grade equivalent) through the undergraduate levels as well as adults and graduate students.

I enjoy working one-on-one with students and tailoring study plans to meet individual needs. I am looking forward to working with you, too.

I have more than 20 years of ESL/EFL/ESOL teaching/tutoring experience. I lived and worked in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire for 26 years before returning to the US. I also ran the TOEFL center for the International University of Grand Bassam for several years. As a speaker of several languages, I understand the frustration you feel when you cannot express yourself as well as you would like to in your second language.
