Professional English professor with 30 plus years experience including teaching internationally also

Methodology

I enjoy teaching all levels of students although my experience is mostly with high school and university undergraduate students. I believe in active learning (face to face and online) and coaching as opposed to lecturing. My students succeed by actively doing what they are learning.

Background

I have been tutoring and teaching for over 30 years. I have taught face to face classes as well as online to as many as 30 students. My students have stayed in touch with me throughout their graduate studies and work lives.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $20/h

Details

I will add travel expenses if further than 10 miles travel. Cancellation must be at least 4 hours before the scheduled lesson or the fee must be paid.
