About Larry Colvin

I am originally from San Diego, Ca. Most of my adult life I have been involved one way or the other helping others learn. In my younger years I was an up and coming Marine Biologist. In 1986 W.C.Summers and myself were the first ones to cultivate the stubby squid Rossia pacifica in the laboratory. After a few years I decided I wanted to help the younger generation learn English. The last 19 years I have been living in other countries, and teaching English to students from around the world. I now spend half the year in Kyiv, Ukraine and the other half of the year in San Diego, California. I am at the point in my life, and career that I can choose to do what I really enjoy doing, and this is teaching the 3'rs, along with science too students in the world.
