I teach English speaking and writing skills. I have an Arizona teaching certificate in English and a Master's degree in Communications. My teaching certificate includes Structured English Immersion K-12.I also teach entry level classes at a local college.
I believe learning should be fun, so I try to make every lesson interesting and memorable. I also believe that using computers and online resources not only provides help in learning, they provide a resource for the student's future needs.
I have been teaching public speaking for the last 20 years. Because I teach in a classroom, I practice public speaking regularly. My emphasis in teaching speech is in preparing the speech, so the speaker is more comfortable. I try to help with the performance of the speech emphasizing enunciation, gestures, posture,and appearance, so the speaker makes his or her point non-verbally. As a performance-based skill, I use a number of techniques including recording the speaker, so he or she can evaluate his or her performance. I also offer some tips on relaxing and preparing for what many feel is a difficult task.
