Peter Nolan Smith English Tutor


About this tutor

I have been writing for over thirty years; poetry, literature, translations, essay, commercial and promotional works.

I have worked in Thailand, France, and the USA for ad agencies and film production as well as serving as writer-in-residence for the British Embassy in Luxembourg.

This February I will be reading my monograph at New York's MoMA and am currently seeking a publisher for BACK AND FORTH my hitchhiking novel of a 1974 trip across the USA.

I have taught in the Boston School System and given English lessons to students in Thailand and Tibet.

I look forward to tutoring students in English and share my love of my native language.

I love language and speak French, German, Thai, and Indonesian. Reading has long been one of my great pleasure and writing my greatest joy.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First find out their levels of reading and writing as well as listen to their goals and needs to create a two-way communication between the student and myself.

Once I have assessed the student's levels I introduce them to a sightly higher plane of English and literature, taking into consideration the student's desire to improve their skills.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a BA degree in Economics and taught at South Boston High School.

I have written as a journalist in France and Thailand.

I also manage a website with over 7000 original entries and write daily.
