About Chuck

 Hello! I am a lifelong musician and educator, with a great deal of experience in writing and speaking the English language.
I lived in Thailand for six years and learned to speak Thai, which helped me to have an even greater appreciation for the difficulty of  learning to speak and write in the English language.  In my career  as a Special Inspector I was  required to read Building Codes and write many reports using legal jargon and precise and accurate words in descriptions. This ability, combined with my background in music education, has given me a good command of the English language with the ability to communicate that to students. This ability, combined with my background in music education, has given me a good command of the English language with the ability to communicate that to students.
I also have experience in teaching math, had to use it in my career, and I'm good at helping students understand
