About Brian

Learn from my experience, in English and in Medicine. I am an American with years of experience in higher education; 3 American degrees and a teaching certificate from Cambridge University. I focus now on language, writing and English instruction, but my medical background persists. I practiced for years here and am still board-certified. You may expect instruction that is personalized, polished and professional ('alliteration' -- See, you're learning already!). Neither Medicine nor English are easy to master; I am student of foreign languages myself. However, you will see your progress with every lesson, then exercise it in your own world.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

I have my Certificate from Cambridge University (CELTA)

Writing

Writing with Purpose

To write is to speak to the reader. In a voice that is clear, directive and compelling. I have written for academic, professional and popular reasons. In each instance, it is critical to know the audience, to speak in a voice that they will understand (whatever their intelligence and vocabulary. To be CELTA trained is to review the rules of English grammar--an important qualification for students struggling with their writing.
