My personal interests include theater, poetry, cinema, photography, and travel. I have thirty years E.S.L. (T.E.F.L) experience in the U.S., Japan, Spain, and most recently in the Czech Republic. My main focus is on helping students find ease in learning English, so that the learning process is seen as an interesting challenge. I have been lead TOEFL instructor at Bellevue Community College (now Bellevue College) for over 10 years.
