Online English Writing Program

For learners who are happy with their current level of speaking and listening skills but would like to improve their writing skills for work or school, I am available as an online writing tutor.

This course is being redesigned, integrating some of the methods being presented at the TESOL conference. The website will be updated soon. Please contact me in the meantime if you would like a custom course.  

New courses coming include “Fake News: Identifying Misleading and Fake News As a Non-Native Speaker of English.”
