Having taught ESL with the Beverly Hills Unified School District since 1998, I work with students from all over the world, with all socio-economic and educational backgrounds. I am a compassionate and passionate teacher, and seek to imbue each student with the joy of learning. I've worked with young students and very seasoned students, with a special focus on strong grammatical skills and accent reduction. In today's "global village" I believe the mastery of English is crucial to anyone who must use the language in either a personal or a professional environment. If I were to sum up my teaching philosophy in one word, it would be "empower" --- I seek to empower my students with each and every lesson.
In both my English as a Second Language and standard English for native speakers teaching, I am an "old school" educator. My goal is to strengthen grammar, boost reading comprehension, writing skills, correct pronunciation, etc., and have joyfully taught literally thousands of students from all over the globe. My current students range in age from 8 to 88. I strive to instill a love of language and learning, while cultivating a respect for the beauty and the challenges of mastering English. With sensitivity, patience, humor and humanity in each and every class I teach, I take a personal and professional pride in the improvement of my students.
