"I taught English to foreign executives for many years through World Learning, Inc. Two of my students worked for Perstorp, a leading Swedish chemical company, which was establishing sales and manufacturing of Pergo flooring products in the United States and South America. I taught a Greek pediatrician, an Ernst & Young consultant from Spain, and an Esso manager from Argentina. For a year, I taught a Venezuelan auditor with CSX Corporation.  I also taught an intensive English class at West Virginia University where the majority of the students were Chinese government officials studying English while touring steel production and coal mining operations.

I love language and will approach your studies of English with passion.

I spent many years as a journalist. I was a regular contributor to The New York Times business section, articles ranging from the transition of natural products companies (e.g., Burt’s Bees, Tom’s of Maine) into mainstream commerce to tracking investments of Warren Buffett. For Congressional Quarterly, I wrote lengthy reports on subjects that included living wages, affordable housing, mental health, and women in sports. For Business Week, I wrote about a tiny Guatemalan village transformed by ecotourism, how the aging population is changing our communities, and other features.

In a second career, I helped manage organic farms producing specialty crops of food and flowers. I currently combine the two by writing for a niche magazine for ecological farmers in North America. I'm interested in tutoring while continuing to write part-time." less...
