Your Friendly Neighborhood Tutor for Math and Writing

I have a degree in English Literature from Stanford University. I've worked professionally as a writer for many years--in a few different fields--and I firmly believe that strong, confident writing is a skill that everybody needs, not just those writing professionally. I've taught writing and composition at the college level, and I've tutored young writers. For me, the payoff of working with a student comes when the person finds his or her own writing voice. I've tutored on and off throughout my life, beginning in college, and I always seem to come back to it. I've tutored calculus, writing, [more]

Learn English to succeed at what you really want to do!

In addition to teaching basic and intermediate writing for multilingual students, I have taught English composition, business writing, and technical writing -- all at the university level -- in the United States and abroad. I just completed teaching the course, Introduction to Composition, at the University of San Francisco. How can I improve my English? It's a good question and one I have been asked hundreds -- if not thousands -- of times. As you probably know by now, there's no one answer, no "magic bullet", and no app to learn English while you sleep (at least not yet). However, there are [more]

College and High School Physics and Math

Tutoring is an act of observation. It succeeds where normal instruction fails because it is geared toward a student's particular strengths. My best experiences as a tutor have been with the students who needed me most, learning how they needed to learn. I have been a tutor in one setting or another since childhood. As an undergraduate I was a teacher's assistant in English, German and Astronomy, a grader in Calculus and a tutor in Physics for scientists and engineers. I have continued to... [more]

Experienced ESL teacher, Peace Corps trained

I have a long history of ESL teaching, both abroad and at home. I was trained by the Peace Corps. I taught ESL (including an intensive one-year immersion class) in Malaysian Borneo, Japan and Guam. The state granted me a lifetime adult teaching credential in 1969. Most recently, I taught ESL for an Adult School. I strongly emphasize oral skills--speaking--as the essential basic requirement for learning English (or any language), with reading and writing to follow aural-oral comprehension and ... [more]
