I taught English overseas for eight years. I have experience in teaching ESL, grammar, phonics, literature, reading and writing essays. I recently returned from China where I taught at Zhongshi Korean International School for two years. There I taught middle and high school grades. In South Korea I taught elementary children. In Italy I taught adults and teenagers English as a second language. Now I live in Tucson, Arizona where I teach or tutor a variety of students including elementary ESL, high school students, and university students as well as adults. I'm available for TOEFL preparation as well. I believe in encouragement and positive reinforcement. I feel a student should feel good about themselves and their accomplishments.
