I teach all kinds of English classes including writing, grammar, literature, and ESL. I am an avid reader of fiction and non-fiction especially poetry, science fiction, and fantasy.
I have been teaching in one form or another for more than 10 years. I taught English as Foreign Language in three different Chinese universities for a total of eight and a half years. These classes included comprehensive English, listening and speaking, writing, and pronunciation where I taught BA, MA, and Ph.D. students. Since we have returned to the United States, I have taught/tutored ESL and English Language Arts both in person and online.
I am also a professional writer. I have a traditionally published book, another at my publisher waiting to be edited, and a novel in its second draft. I love giving students the chance to communicate, write, and learn in community with others.
I love sharing the wonder of language with learners young and old--both those who are learning English for the first time and those who reading the classics or writing brand new classics of their own.
