I am a patient, caring yet motivated mentor/instructor. With a little humor I try and bring out the best in my students. I prefer to talk with my students rather than at them. I have taught in an elementary/junior high school in the Republic of Ireland as well as teaching ESL to children in the Czech Republic. I have 40 years experience in the classroom here in the U.S.
Education & Certification
Undergraduate Degree: Gonzaga University - Bachelor in Arts, Philosophy

I make videos, sometimes for my own enjoyment sometimes for educational purposes. I play the guitar (somewhat good) and the piano (somewhat not-so-good). I enjoy movies, reading about vampires and other fantasy creatures. I live in Oregon, but am still a 49ers, Giants and Warrior fan. I love playing with my granddaughters making them laugh.
