"I have been teaching the fundamentals of English academic writing to non-native speakers for more than 15 years at Columbia University, University of California Los Angeles, Hunter College, St. John's University and Pace University and most recently at Bilkent University, one of Turkey's leading private universities.

Besides writing, I am an expert pronunciation coach and have taught speaking classes at all of the institutions listed above. In my experience, a warm student-teacher relationship is key to student achievement. I left a business career 15 years ago to pursue my passion to become an educator. My students will tell you how committed I am to your success.

I hold an MA in TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language), a certificate in TESOL, and 15 years of experience as a practitioner in the classroom. Besides my experience in teaching four skills of reading, writing, listening, and speaking, I have broad experience in standardized testing, as both an IELTS examiner, and a GMAT, GRE, and TOEFL test prep instructor.

Before becoming an educator, I majored in French Boston College, spent one year abroad in Paris, and worked for the French Embassy Press Service. I continued to work in a bilingual environment (the New York office of the French Electronic Industries Association) until I completed my MBA at New York University. I travel to France frequently to visit friends. Besides my fluency in French, I am a competent speaker of other languages, including German, Italian, Japanese and Turkish. I have a real passion for language and can demystify how French works to make you more confident and therefore, proficient. Much of the training I have received in teaching English as a second language is applicable to learning any second language.

I am ready to work and help you achieve your language goals." less...
