PhD in English, published novelist, 20 years experience internationally now in Detroit

Methodology

I feel that once an instructor locates the strength and weaknesses of the student, the instructor can use the strength to work on the weaknesses. Tutoring makes it easier to understand the student you are working with and give effective lessons.

Background

I have been teaching for 20 years. I taught at universities in Colorado for 7 years. I taught EFL in Asia and Saudi Arabia. I was also an assistant professor at a Saudi university. I recently returned to the States and relocated to Detroit.

Rates

Rate for a 1-hour lesson. : $24/h

Details

As long as I agree to the location, cost of travel is not an issue. Cancellation is not an issue also, as long as I have not already headed off to the session.
