My name is Anita M. I love teaching. I was a speech
pathologist for over 25 years. I am now working primarily as a teacher of English
for foreign language
students but certainly can help out with those needing to learn English in general. I would describe my teaching style as enthusiastic, accommodating and supportive. I will do what it takes to help a student learn and try my best to understand their learning style. After many years as a speech and Language pathologist, I feel I am good at assessing a student's particular learning style and adapting my class in that way.
I am also a yoga
instructor. I find this background can help in that I can be quite calm and focused in my approach and I can also help the student with any relaxation techniques that might be needed for them to participate and learn to succeed in school. I also am willing to use Yoga as a means of learning when it is appropriate and helpful to engage the student and keep their attention.
In addition to the above I feel that I learn from all students I teach. I think it is part of what I love about teaching. It is never a one-sided experience.
You might also find it interesting to know that I have lived in Mexico for the past 18 months. I moved to Mexico to have the opportunity to teach English as a Second Language
as well as to learn Spanish
. I am still working on my Spanish but my teaching experience in Mexico has been fabulous. I think this experience reflects that I love learning and that I enjoy being immersed in different cultures and experiences.
In summary, I am an experienced instructor that will make the tutoring experience engaging, fun and non-threatening. I will do everything I can to help the student learn. I look forward to meeting and helping you out.
