The metro is 10 minutes away, and a bus outside the apartment building will take you there quickly. Come and visit!

Teaching Qualifications and Experience

I am a retired attorney who currently works full-time teaching attorneys about legal issues that affect older Americans. I have a college degree in education, and spent five years early in my career teaching young children in a classroom setting. I have spent over 30 years teaching adults various legal topics in both classroom and online environments. Because I really enjoy teaching English, I have volunteered for years to teach English as a second language to various ethnic and language groups, helping them to succeed on the college proficiency test. I have a TOEFL Certificate.

Hobbies and Interests

I enjoy all aspects of culture, including music, dance and art. There are an abundance of art museums and galleries in the Washington DC area, and I enjoy visiting them regularly. I attend either a musical event (classical, symphony or jazz) or a theater presentation several times per month.


The student would have a separate bedroom with bathroom/shower with Large bed with new mattress, closet, desk, and good lighting. The living room and kitchen are in the middle of the apartment, with a bedroom/bathroom on each side. As a result there is a great deal of privacy for myself and guest.

Excursions and Local Attractions

Would you like to learn English while living in the very center of activity of America? Come to Washington DC and see the excitement of the United States up close! I live in the suburbs of DC, only a short metro ride away from the museums, theater, sports, culture and history of the capital of America. You will be able to spend time each day exploring the Smithsonian Museums, the National Art Gallery, and the centers of American history and government. You can take in a musical event, ballet or theater in the evening, or maybe go to a major sporting event. I can help you find discount tickets and coupons that only locals know about! When you are ready to see more of the country, you can walk 2 blocks from my apartment to the train station that will take you to Baltimore (30 minutes), Philadelphia (90 minutes), or even the beaches of the Atlantic coast (90 minutes). If you enjoy the outdoors, you will find parks, lakes, and ski resorts within an easy walk or train ride.
