English/Spanish coach and teacher offering tutoring in English for test prep, career prep, and essay review. Tutor Spanish classes, ESOL.

Methodology

I approach each student individually, and prefer to understand their interests and roadblocks before setting out a course of action. I can assist young people with homework, and adults with more complex issues as needs arise.

Background

I am retired and living in Gainesville, Florida. Having lived all over South and Central America as a State Department dependent, and then 40 years in vibrant wonderful Miami, I am in place to assist people who are seeking to be culturally informed. I worked in recruiting and outplacement for many years, and can help with resumes and other such job-seeking skills.
