Adam – General English / English Tutor

Adam found his passion for teaching while working as an education reporter for several newspapers around the Midwest and east coast of the United States. This position required that he spend a lot of time with teachers and students: some of the best moments of his young adulthood- and where his passion for teaching began. After leaving journalism, Adam got a Master’s degree in Education and started working in the classroom, spending two years at a high school near Washington, D.C. He loved working on language with students in two ways: through developing their writing skills, and improving their understanding of literature. He finds that most students, even if native-speakers, have areas that need improvement. Focusing first on these trouble spots, and helping students communicate more effectively demonstrates various ways English can be used. While he expands his own language horizons by learning German, he is looking forward to exploring new possibilities teaching English lends as he meets new students.
