Experienced University Instructor in Vancouver Tutors in Academic Writing , Grammar, and Vocabulary.

Methodology

I want to help you to become a better writer by focusing on grammatical accuracy, coherent expression, and academic vocabulary. I feel that these are the basics of good writing. Once we have these basics, fluency becomes a more realistic goal.

Background

I have been teaching English as a Second Language for 25 years. The last 8 years I have been teaching Academic Writing to undergraduate and graduate students. The main focus has been on essay writing skills such as coherence, as well as academic vocabulary.
