Academic English Studies

John Barritt



Welcome!  I’m pleased to be a part of the vibrant LC-AES community.  A “transplant” to Portland (who now thinks of himself as “nativized”), I’ve taught in both Morocco and Prague (“Portland on the Vltava”).  I’ve also lived in various places throughout the United States, including New York City, California, Wisconsin and Texas.

I come to English language teaching by way of studies in philosophy and art.  In addition to these areas, my teaching interests include courses in the social sciences, technology and literature.  Outside of the classroom, I enjoy cycling, hiking, writing and photography.
