Career Experience

I am a specialist in language and linguistics, with a particular interest in the history and grammar of the English language and in the French language as it is spoken in Canada. I also have training in teaching English as a second language (ESL) and many years of teaching this and other subjects like English, linguistics and writing at the college and adult levels. Plus, I have professional experience in writing and editing including in the compilation of dictionaries as well as running my own language consulting service.

I Love Tutoring Because

my background is a mix of the academic and the practical, and this is an important aspect of what I bring to my tutoring. I really like working with students one on one because that way I get a much better sense of the student and her/his specific needs and learning style than I would standing in front of a class of students (and I've done plenty of that in my career). I'm a very giving, helpful, other-directed person when it comes to tutoring and helping students succeed.

Other Interests

Amateur astronomy, American football, Baseball, Computer programming, Driving, Flying, Football, Foreign language learning, Hiking, Ice hockey, Programming, Reading, Traveling, Urban exploration

gave very helpful suggestions. When finding a grammar error made sure I understood why. Was very nice, encouraging, and patient.

I like how the tutors are willing to talk to you about the subject for as long as you want. I think that's one of the best things about this service: the willingness of the tutors to work with you until you understand the material.
