"Ms. Judy is the bomb!" "Keep her." "She's the real thing." "They don't make them like her anymore." "I liked vocabulary quizzes the best." These are some student comments written on my course evaluations in the last year. Why? Because students learn; grammar (like apostrophes and commas) becomes understandable; success in writing is do-able; and meeting time is fun!
My academic background is thorough. My teaching experience is ample. Because my personal experiences include two years of living in another country where English is not spoken, I empathize and can help the non-native speaker, whatever the native language is. Tutoring students from 5th grade through college has reinforced my understanding of the skills required for success.
The only thing I enjoy as much as this fascinating English language is the individual and fascinating student; each one is unique.
