About the author

Kenneth (Ken) Cranker studied biology, concentrating in human nutrition, at Cornell University. It was while working in a biochemical laboratory there that Ken came into contact with international post-docs conducting top-notch research in English, a non-native language, and he was inspired to become an ESL teacher. After obtaining an M.S. in TESOL at SUNY Albany, he taught in Japan for twelve years, nearly half of which were at the university level. After returning to the U.S., he has been teaching primarily English for academic purposes at the University of Delaware English Language Institute, preparing conditionally admitted students for university studies.
