I am an experienced language teacher and learner, having learned Spanish and French, and having taught English for 25 years. I also supported teachers of 35 languages at any Ivy-League language center. Language learning should be fun but thoughtful, expressive of oneself but revealing of other cultures. I greatly enjoy guiding others down this learning path.

I enjoy learning and thinking about languages and cultures. Also, I like physical skills like carpentry, electrical work and plumbing. I'm quite an avid birdwatcher.
