I am a British teacher and writer with a deep passion for writing and reading, language and ideas, dialogue, teaching and learning. In a lifetime of study and teaching, at school and university, among writers, researchers and artists, I have developed an extensive and intensive range of experience and a love of teaching that has brought praise for the excitement and insight generated in my work with students. I have expertise in the English language, in writing poetry, fiction and non-fiction essays, dissertations and so on - and in literature, having studied and taught British, American, colonial and comparative literatures. One of my specialisms is Shakespeare and his contemporaries, both on the page and in performance (I am dramaturg to the Curtain Theater in the Bay area); another is the work of Ezra Pound and his modernist contemporaries in America, Britain and Europe. I love teaching. My method is essentially Socratic: I invite the student to talk about the subject, in general and specifically, then use that as a basis for improvement. I look forward to making a real difference to the student's knowledge and understanding.
