Originally from New York City and now based in Santa Barbara, I've been teaching English as a Second language (ESL) for over 30 years. I've worked in universities, continuing education programs and workplace settings to support immigrants and international university students in all aspects of English including: reading, writing, grammar, listening comprehension, pronunciation and accent reduction. And since 2005, I've also helped employees in the software and medical device industries overcome linguistic obstacles necessary for advancing in their careers. In addition to presentation coaching, I've used my experience as a freelance journalist to give professionals an edge in their business writing. Let me help you master the skills and strategies necessary to excel in both academic and professional contexts. Please get in touch with me today to learn what I can offer you.
