I also have an MA in international relations from Georgetown and spent many years in international development both in Washington, DC, Zambia and consulting around the world. I am eager to help internationals moving to Seattle who need help dealing with professional and bureaucratic English as they get settled in the U.S. I am particularly interested in Asian and South Asian cultures and would welcome students from countries in those...

I am a linguist by training and speak six languages. I also have an MA in international relations from Georgetown and spent many years in international development both in Washington, DC, Zambia and consulting around the world. I am eager to help internationals moving to Seattle who need help dealing with professional and bureaucratic English as they get settled in the U.S. I am particularly interested in Asian and South Asian cultures and would welcome students from countries in those regions. I myself am always learning a new language and truly enjoy working with words. I also edit, proofread and write professionally. I have been teaching English, international relations theory, diplomatic history and American Society and foreign policy since 1991, mostly in Slovakia, where I lived for 12 years. I've worked mostly with university students and adults. I love working with individuals who are eager to learn, not only the subject matter, but also about themselves.

Since 2011 I have been training corporate and nonprofit managers in communication skills in Central Europe. Among these skills are public speaking and giving good presentations. Usually I provide a 2-day intensive workshop and have had consistently excellent post-training evaluations. I have worked through agencies (Timan, Mega-Education) and independently with a clientele that includes IBM, ING Bank, O2 (European mobile telephone operator), the Slovak Ministry of Finance and individual nonprofit managers and entrepreneurs.
