I have over 20 years' teaching experience in Elementary Education and Adult ESOL classes. I have taught in
Florida, California, Hawaii, Minnesota and Washington State. My students like to learn with me because I have a lot of patience and like to see them succeed. I try to make each class easy and fun, and at the same time believe in repetition of subject material until the student definitely understands the material. I like to use analogies of situations I think the student is familiar with, such as sports, music, or even stories that make a point relevant to what we are learning. I truly enjoy helping students learn and understand what they need to know, and especially grades 1,2, and 3, because those are the foundation grades for reading, writing, and math, and I think once a student is proficient in the basics they can succeed anywhere. I also have many years of teaching ESOL, English to Speakers of Other Languages, on any age level. I speak enough Spanish to get by, includes reading.
