I believe that I act more as a facilitator for students to learn, than a lecturer. I want them to think and speak in class more than I do. My goal is to help enhance their ability to articulate their views and to use organized, deductive reasoning to do so.
I am highly energetic and dynamic. Students will not be bored.
I've taught English and Writing to foreign students preparing for their college entrance exams. I have also written hundreds of legal briefs and helped with student's essays. I have taught over 20 classes and tutored individuals for the past 3 years.
