Private English Language Tutor and Copy editor in Boston
My name is Eric Berg and I am a private English tutor and copy editor living in Arlington, Massachusetts, near Cambridge and Boston. I have a Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults (CELTA) administered by Cambridge University, a Bachelor's degree in English from Northeastern University, a Master's degree in English Literature from the University of Virginia, a certificate in copy editing from Emerson College, and have worked at AGNI, Boston University's literary magazine, and the American division of Faber & Faber.
I have taught ESL both in schools and privately for about twenty years, having worked at Berlitz, the New York Language Center, Approach, and at a school in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I have taught ESL to private students for about eight years here in Boston, and previously taught students in Allston and Brookline about a decade ago. I am very knowledgeable about grammar, usage, and vocabulary, and I also speak French, Italian, and some Spanish. I usually meet in cafes or libraries, but I can come to your house if you live close to Cambridge, Somerville, or Arlington.
I am also a freelance copy editor who has edited documents including articles on Japanese religious history, biochemistry proposals, and documents and presentations for a UN official. I am also conversant in mathematics and physics, having been a math and physics major in high school and my first year in college. I specialize in documents written by non-native speakers.
