*What are your qualifications?
I have a B.A. in history and English, an M.A. in the humanities ( a classical studies program), and have had a book of poetry published by Towson State University. I have taught for numerous years, and am also the coordinator of the Bangkok Philosophy and Great Classics Discussion Group. I teach literature and writing classes at Ramkhamhaeng University.
*What types of classes are offered at the language school?
Right now classes range from TOEFL, Advanced Reading, and Lower Intermediate classes to beginning adult, teenage conversation, and children’s conversation classes
*Are these classes fun?
Unlike so many English teachers I am very serious, albeit in a fun way. I do not deliberately entertain you. I deliberately see that your are continually challenged and supported to soar to greater heights. And I expect all of my students to love academia and to yearn to learn as much as I yearn to teach. I am less serious with the children’s classes, but I still strive for increased vocabulary and syntax
*Why is your language school in Laksi?
Soon, a BTS station will open and when it does students will be able to make a five minute walk to the language school

Among other projects I spent a year helping an ornithologist who was an expert in a species of bird called the hill mynah. I edited the chapters of her book
*What are your degrees in?
My Master’s degree is in the humanities, great books of the Western canon in literature, philosophy, social sciences, and science and was forced to read some of the very greatest books in various time periods. I also have a Bachelor’s degree with a double major of history and English
