A Classicist with a Ph.D. from UC Berkeley, I have been teaching in the San Francisco Bay area since 2000. My students constantly teach me new things. For example, I’ve become very knowledgeable about the latest trends in technology, like texting and GoToMeeting.
Technology aside, I firmly believe in technique. Just as one can get badly injured by exercising improperly, so one can develop the wrong habits in studying languages – or anything else. So I am constantly working on refining my teaching technology. I am well aware that one size does not fit all. At the same time there are some basics that are present in all study. Rhythm is one of those; another is logic.
