About meI was born in the San Francisco Bay Area of California and now live in Thailand. I’ve taught most levels from kindergarten to university-doctoral students. My experience includes 16 years of teaching university students in Thailand. The students I’ve taught in Thailand came from Japan, Korea, China, Vietnam, Singapore and of course Thailand itself. My online students have been mostly from South America, Russia, Turkey, and all over Asia. I can teach grammar, business English, listening-speaking, writing, accent reduction, and academic English. I now teach and consult at a private school owned by my family. My teaching style is patient and understanding. My B.A. is from U.C. Berkeley, PhD from the University of London, and post-doctoral fellowship as staff at Princeton University: all in language studies. I’ve studied seven languages. Additionally, I’m an Accredited Gemologist, having taught gemology and managed a gemological institute. My hobbies are organic tropical gardening, nutrition, collecting things such as coins, stamps, fossils, antique furniture, general antiques, camping, walking through the jungle looking for edible mushrooms, cooking, gemstones, palaeontology, quantum physics, and science fiction. I am also very much into movies, lifestyle, and entertainment! I mean, I'm INTERESTED IN ALMOST EVERYTHING!
