About Rebecca

I have a TESL – TESOL Certificate, am a Certified Instructional Designer, and have a B.A. in English from the University of Pittsburgh. I’ve been teaching conversational English, writing, and reading online and in classrooms for 8 years. I’ve been a professional writer, editor, and trainer for the last 15 years. My fiction and nonfiction have been published in a number of literary magazines, books, and anthologies. I also wrote a text book, Effective Corporate and Technical Writing, which won an Award of Excellence from the Society of Technical Communications.

I tailor my teaching to each student’s needs. I use learning principles that are student-centric, working with the learner’s background, interests, and experience. I’ve found that it’s important to include the student in building the learning program and make them a part of the process—with my guidance. This not only fosters trust, it also helps show the relevance of the lessons, which is a powerful motivator.
