"I have been a teacher for nearly thirty years and have successfully helped many students understand difficult concepts or develop difficult skills. I have worked with American-born students and with international students from all over the world, so I have a good understanding of some of the challenges students may face with trying to understand challenging concepts. Most students are smart enough to understand whatever they face in school, but not all students learn the same way. Good tutors and teachers know how to customize the learning experience to fit the learning needs of the student. Good tutors and teachers also know that self-confidence is the greatest tool for successfully mastering any concept or challenge. A good tutor and teacher knows how to motivate students and help them see that they are capable of success.

I have worked with students in learning high levels of academic English, grammar, pronunciation, speaking, reading, and writing. In addition, I have worked extensively with students in the area of academic writing and creative thinking, which is critical to success as a university or high school student. I have also taught in the area of Linguistics as well as creative writing and can provide effective help in both those broad areas, as well.

I am a good English tutor because I have spent my life studying how language works, particularly the English language, and have been engaged in explaining language concepts to students at all levels who struggle with learning a second language. My PhD is in linguistics, with a special focus on English, so I have a keen understanding of how the English language works and am able to help students see the patterns and structure of English in a way that pulls it all together to make sense.

Please contact me with your English, Linguistic, or Writing needs. I am confident that I can help you pinpoint your problem areas, build on your strengths, and find a way to develop strategies for success in whichever of these areas that challenge you." less...
