    Teaching Approach

    My program is unique because I teach English and then provide in class practice with native speakers. Those native English speakers are also studying Japanese. Each lesson is centered on a specific language function customized to the needs of my students. The English conversation is translated into Japanese. Each group studies its target language. Then they have time to do structured practice in a collaborative setting. This kind of practice helps students get over their fear of speaking to native speakers. It also fosters friendships among students, facilitating outside of class practice. These elements add tremendous value to the language learning experience.

    Program Description

    I teach communicative grammar and high interest reading lessons. I teach all levels of English. I have special knowledge of working in the hospitality industry, since I worked at a hotel while I was teaching in California. I also try to incorporate language exchange in my program. I work in tandem with another language teacher and we collaborate with students as they exchange language. We recruit students that are trying to learn the language of their schoolmates. That way they are able to practice with native speakers.

    Teaching Experience

    I taught ESL to adults for twenty years in California. I taught Elementary School for six years and preschool for one year. I also wrote life skills curriculum for the State of California.

    Teacher Training

    I have a BA in English, a multiple subjects teaching credential, and an adult education credential. I have over 30 college credits beyond my BA.
