About Me

I would like to help you gain some confidence reading, writing, speaking and listening in English. I am happy to work with you on a single homework assignment, but you can employ the techniques I will share with you on every reading and writing assignment. There are two parts to success; the first is learning the practical tools that will increase your language awareness, the second is practice. I will teach you the tools, and I can guide you as you practice until you have the confidence you need to quickly recognize language features in a text, and communicate effectively.

- I will share with you several easy to remember and specific approaches to language and visual analysis.
- I will work with you on structuring your responses to any type of assignment.

A little bit about me: I have lived and worked in New York City for a long time, and I've recently moved to California. I love traveling, reading, writing, art, movies, scuba diving, cycling and nature, and working with international students around the world.

I encourage you to reach out to ask any questions you may have for me!
