    Teaching Approach


    I believe in using a tailored approach to teaching. Students have varying learning styles and come from different backgrounds. First, I try to find out as much as I can about the student's prior education levels. The lessons I would use for an English language learner with a college degree in his or her own country would be very different from those for a student who is illiterate in his or her native language.

    I believe in stressing lots of practice in small chunks, and encourage the students to practice their skills in a variety of ways. I also try to tailor lessons to students indivdual interest and have them read about and discuss their own cultures in English


    Program Description


    For beginning ESL learners, each lesson generally revolves around a specific topic relevant to real life. For example, I might start with a unit on the family, where the students learn the vocabulary necessary to describe members of their family. Next, the students read selections about family life and answer simple questions about the reading material to develop strong reading comprehension skills. The next step is developing listening skills, so I will play an audio about family life and ask them to answer questions based on the information that they heard. I then move on to having them write a short paragraph about their own families. Finally, I will give them several questions related to family life and have them interview each other in order to help them develop confience in their speaking skills.


    Teaching Experience


    I have been an ESL and Advanced writing instructor for a community college for two years. Also, I served as a volunteer tutor in English and Math with a non-profit organization for over ten years.

    I currently work for two language learning schools, one online and the other face-to-face helping students improve business English skills, conversationa l English, and TOEFL and IELTS preparation.
    Finally, I have a number of private tutoring students ranging from grade 1 through college. These students have achieved significant improvements, and I can provide references and testimonials upon request.
