James Wright has taught English to multilingual and international learners of all ages for nearly fifteen years and has traveled widely in Central America, East Asia, and Southeast Asia. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from Georgetown College and a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing from the University of Arkansas, where he developed the University’s first-ever English as a Second Language tutoring program for the Quality Writing Center. He has lived and taught English in the United States, Belize, rural Japan, and Malaysia, where in 2009 he served as a Fulbright grant recipient. To Mr. Wright, learning is most exciting at the intersections between cultures and languages, where mutual understanding takes shape. He now serves as the English as a Second Language (ESL) specialist at Transylvania University.
