HobbiesI come from a family of six boys, being the oldest, my two youngest brothers came and lived with me each when he was 18 years old where I did my best do help correct the limited educations they had gotten from the public schools -- how to read and paraphrase were important lessons for people learning to write is what I learned from helping them. Have taught many ESL students who were making their way into writing in the English language -- writing being the most difficult thing to do whenever you learn a new language.
