From the very first (1978!), I loved teaching English to people who had come to live in America, whether temporarily or for good. To see my adult students grow in confidence and start to feel at home was very rewarding. In New York, I taught many college students and business professionals who would only be spending one to four years in the U.S., as well as immigrants who'd had to make their way from possibly illegal entries to the working world: some of the most privileged, and some of the least. It seemed an honor to get to work with each student I had. Everyone has a fascinating story. And everyone is happier with a boost in confidence and skills. That is what drew me time and again to return to teaching: the satisfaction of seeing someone become ever more assured and skillful, enjoying life all the more for the new competencies acquired. I like to support positive attitudes, hope, generosity, and joy in life. My students always touched my heart and enriched my life, so that I naturally hoped to bring some benefit to theirs. After my years in the Virginia countryside, away from the wonderful international environment of NYC, I'm thrilled to realize that teaching online can let me once again work with students from all over the world. Can't wait to meet you!
