He transferred to the Los Angeles area and earned a Master of Arts in Linguistics from California State University, Fullerton. He began teaching English in 2008 and taught English for academic purposes at CSUF, Cal State LA, and Glendale Community College. He also tutored GRE/GMAT analytical writing during this time. In 2014, he joined the USC International Academy, where he taught master’s program preparatory courses from 2014 to 2023. In total, Ezra has taught English for academic purposes for over 15 years.
