About Me

I am an American PhD based in the US with over 20 years of teaching experience at the university and high school levels. I have extensive writing experience and am highly qualified to tutor you in all aspects of professional and academic English speaking, writing, and reading comprehension. I have lived all over the world and thus I am excited to offer cross-cultural lessons that help ease your transition to an English-speaking institution or corporation.

I love to travel, hike, camp, and watch birds with my partner. I am an avid Scrabble player. In addition to working on contract, I help manage a nature reserve in Pennsylvania, and I also engage in independent scholarship, including research and publishing, in collaboration with other academics.
