Experienced English teacher ready, willing & able to help improve your reading, writing, vocabulary skills to adults & high school students

Methodology

I have a BA in English from the City College of New York; an MFA in theatre from Yale University. My background reflects both my passions and my career choices: after several years in theatre as an actor and singer, I went on to a career in journalism in tandem with teaching English at the college level. These days, I do private tutoring and continue my life-long habit of reading voraciously.

Background

I taught English at Bernard Baruch College for many years. My classes featured reading fiction, non-fiction and journalism, followed by writing assigments inspired by that reading material. Grammar, usage and writing technique was also discussed and practiced. I always tried to choose reading that students could enjoy and assignments they found interesting and challenging.
