Retired college prof teaches French, Spanish, Italian or Portuguese and English writing

Methodology

My approach to teaching foreign languages is for my student and me to read a story in the target language, to learn the grammar deductively, and to discuss the text in the language we're studying. This works for any level.

Background

I started teaching French in Chicago in 1969, went on to teach ESL in France and Japan, and then taught theology in Brazil and Portugal. My students in Japan went on to earn MBA's in the U.S. My students in Brazil got ordained. My students in Portugal became better pastors.

I am happy to recommend Bob as an excellent teacher. Because he listens carefully to your questions, he is able to answer you in a way that is direct, appropriate and understandable. In all the years I have been his friend, I have never known him to talk down to anyone, or teach anything that is misleading or confusing. Because he has such a broad fund of knowledge, he can make any topic he teaches interesting and relevant.
