I've been a college teacher and an educator for everyone. My training is in Communication and English. I prefer to teach through interaction, though on my own I know a lot (in case you're wondering). Your need?
I've taught, advised learners, and tutored for some years now. (I'm understating.) My clients have been children, youth, and adults. I've aided in passing a class or course, going for jobs, writing something book-length, writing for life.
Traveling expenses if I go beyond 10 km. I can work with you through e-mail, though you'll have to trust my tally of time.
