• Hello and welcome!  I teach English to students who are learning it as their second language.  I have been teaching English to non-native English speakers since 2002.  I have a Bachelor of Science degree from Cornell University and a Master's Degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages from The SIT Graduate Institute.  I am originally from the suburbs of Boston, Massachusetts.  I have lived in Greensboro since 2015.  I live here with my wife, two children, and two dogs.

    I enjoy helping our GeUP Scholars reach their full potential by providing a challenging and fun classroom environment.  Students who put in the hard effort will soar to new heights in my class.  I look forward to being your teacher for the 2020 - 2021 academic year!
