I currently tutor clients to improve English writing and speaking skills, to pass their academic and professional-related exams (e.g., Praxis, SAT, ACT), to upgrade their proficiency in communicating in their professional life, and to provide specific help in areas the client feels will best help him or her succeed.

For 40+ years I taught composition and reading skills at the university level, and now substitute teach in public schools part-time and in private, online sessions. If a student has difficulty reading challenging academic sources, likely he/she will have difficulty writing about them. I believe I can help improve students' writing fluency and comprehension skills.
