"I was born in Britain and completed my BA at Oxford and my MA at the University of London. I came to the USA and obtained my PhD at the University of Texas at Austin.

I've been teaching since 1989. I've taught English as a foreign language to students from all over the world in the UK, Austria, France, and the USA. My US history experience includes teaching courses at colleges and universities in the USA. In addition, I've worked for many years as a writing consultant, helping individual students improve their writing.

Helping people learn is more than making a living for me; it's what I love to do!

I qualified as with the Cambridge Certificate in the Teaching of English as a Foreign Language to Adults in 1989. Since then, I've helped students from every continent improve their English. I have a good grasp of grammar, and I give students practical tips to improve their speaking,writing, and comprehension.

In my years that as a writing consultant, I've helped students with personal statements and application letters as well as papers and other school writing assignments. My aim is to improve not only a specific piece of writing, but your skills as a writer.

My PhD and MA are in American Studies; this field is the study of US history and culture. I've taught undergraduates about every period of American history; I've also taught students how to interpret primary sources, how to answer essay questions, and how to write research papers. Whatever your history assignment or project, I'm ready to help.

Tell me what you're working on and I'll do my best to help you. Nothing is too basic, too advanced, or too out of the ordinary." less...
