About Daniel B

I am a native English speaker who was born and raised in the New York City metropolitan area. I also have lived and worked extensively throughout Russian-speaking Eurasia. I hold a B.A. from The College of Wooster and graduated Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa.

I have taught English and writing in the US and abroad. While serving as a US Peace Corps Volunteer in Kazakhstan, I received professional training in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) and taught both high school students and adults. I also have taught courses for adult education classes with a focus on helping English language learners improve skills necessary for professional settings. More recently, I have begun to focus on teaching Business and Legal English.

In addition to teaching experience, I have worked in various positions for several non-profit organizations in the field of education and international exchange. While working at these organizations, I regularly translated various documents and helped to write grant proposals, reports and other documents. I also have training and professional experience as a legal assistant (paralegal) in the US, which means I have an understanding of legal terms, concepts, and systems.

Every English language learner is different and each learner has different goals. I will help you identify your goals, and then I will design lessons to help you achieve these goals. For an affordable fee, you will have one-on-on instruction with a professional and native English-speaking tutor to help you improve your English language skills.

In addition to lessons and courses, I also offer writing, editing and translation (Russian to English) services.
