ABOUT THE TEACHER
I am a multilingual,native English, experienced language teacher/writer and actor who has been teaching for many years in Canada, Europe and the Mid-East. I like teaching ESL, the basic sciences and math to elementary and high school students. Having grown up in Canada, I became aware of the need to help immigrant children integrate into society and since I liked languages to begin with, I thought getting them to appreciate English collocations, idiomatic expressions etc. and express themselves better, would help. Young French Canadians who learned little conversational English, needed to improve their speaking skills. A greater need for tutoring occurred in lower income groups and is still prevalent. I know then I am making a valuable contribution to society in giving someone the potential to raise his income level.
My interests vary as I have a wide cultural base and I tend to share that with my students. So I like photography, visual art, biology, animal behavior, fossil and gem stone collecting as well as physical activities including bicycling and nature walks.
