Personal Description:

I'm a native of the United States who has lived and worked in the UK for many years. Virtually all of my career 'hats' were gained in publishing, editing, communications and teaching/tutoring. I have three grown daughters who are professionals with their own careers, and four grandchildren. I have lived in West Sussex since 1995 and I consider myself very lucky to be here. My current student in residence is from Russia and she is doing her A levels in Portsmouth. I am her English and History tutor.

Tutoring Experience:

I'm an experienced teacher/tutor with over 30 years' background in teaching and training. I now specialise in one-to-one immersion courses in English as a Foreign Language, but I have taught in the classroom at virtually every level and trained media translators in the United Nations. I attended one of the 'Top Ten' high schools (prep schools) in America. My BA (Hon) is in Spanish and History with a minor in English Literature, and MA work is in History.

Tutoring Approach:

I absolutely love one-to-one teaching and training. I strongly believe in the concept of the 'Zone of Proximal Development' which simply put means to adjust the level of challenge to individual ability - not so easy that the student becomes bored, not so difficult as to result in frustration and discouragement. This goal is difficult to achieve in a classroom setting, which is why one-to-one (or two-to-one) tutoring is so effective and produces results.
