I have experience and training in working with people with attention deficit disorders. I have studied how language acquisition is affected as well as advancement in all subjects. I have tutored students with this spectrum of disability . They have been of all ages, and I have used smell stickers, rewards of all kinds, some holding back of rewards and emphasis on what they love to do. With this kind of approach, I have had small and large successes, great leaps in reading for example.
I teach ESL, conversation and grammar, but only in relation to communication. I can also teach the kind of grammar that will help you pass TOEFL, etc.
I studied French at McGill in Montreal and I also lived in Paris. I would love to work with students on this subject. Also I majored in French.
I teach reading; that means the three things: phonics, meaning, and the last is magic. If you're not enjoying it, seeing the movie so to speak, you aren't really reading.
