Educational specialist with rich literature background & more than 25 years experience in writing. Amherst, MA

Methodology

I base my classes on the needs of the students and their learning styles. I use a combination of multisensory methods to keep the subject alive in the students' minds and advocate a bit of discipline in memorizing the material needing mastery.

Background

I am a published psychologist and taught dozens of students over the years in writing and health topics. I am an avid reader of English, French and American literature. I almost became a translator before deciding to pursue another career in education.

Rates

Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $200
