I am really interested in educating the young men and women of our community. I taught High School English in an advanced private school and completed my career teaching diversified learners. These are students that do not fit the regular pattern of education.I found these students to be intelligent and eager to learn and were looking for a slower presentation of a subject or a more accelerated version. In either case, through a system of Individualized Instruction we were able to accommodate these learners. I have mastered the instruction of English Grammar and through my background of Latin and Greek I am able to familiarize students with the origin of words and thus increase their vocabulary.So, I am prepared to assist any kind of learner and see them advance.
I have studied and gotten a Master's in Religious Studies from the Catholic University in Washington, D.C. I have had training in Bible Studies covering the Bible as literature and as a text for the Catholic and Jewish religions. I have a personal interest in the Bible and would like to impart that knowledge to others.
I have taught English Grammar and Literature to high school students. I allow students to explore the meaning of the works of literature to have them see a meaning beyond the literal reading of the text.
I have taught English in High School and have taught ESL- English as a Second Language- for over ten years. I am knowledgeable and extremely patient in explaining difficult parts of English. In addition, I know Spanish and can assist students to transition from their native language to English. I truly enjoy teaching and want to help as many people as possible.
I am now retired, but I taught English for over thirty years in a local high school, and I taught ESL to adults and high school students. I am very familiar with the contents of English grammar, reading and writing and speaking. Whatever you need, I can help you obtain it.
I am very knowledgeable of Latin and have taught Latin at all levels. I used to be a member of the Classical Association back when Latin was popular in high schools. So I am not only interested in Latin but I also occasionally read Latin to stay in touch with this language. I am aware of the importance of Latin as over 90% of our vocabulary derives from Latin and many of the concepts we enjoy in our government and politics is founded on the Ancient Roman system of Law and Order.
I am a retired high school English teacher but an interest in Reading motivated me to get a Master's Degree with specialization in Reading. I became familiar with the Phonics system of the English language and have helped many students improve their reading skills by pointing out the use of Phonics. This involves the knowledge of blends and digraphs and diphthongs and their function in language. This proves an invaluable tool in learning to read and spell words correctly.
As a former teacher, I am certainly aware of the skills needed for public speaking. The first thing you must be aware of is your audience. How knowledgeable and sophisticated are they about the topic presented to them? This will direct your speech regarding interest and depth in the subject presented. This will also allow you to prepare to make your speech relevant and will regulate how deeply you want to probe into the topic. If your intent is to create interest, then you need to stimulate your audience to begin searching further into that topic. Once this has been determined your ability to speak in public will become a natural guide to continue improving your skills.
The most basic aspect of Study Skills comes down to learning organizational skills. Learning how to organize your subjects of study material is most important in a class. Whatever pertains to each subject must be kept organized and in order and not mixed up with all other subjects. Maintaining a daily record of each subject must also be kept in a record book of assignments and when they are due to be submitted. There are record booklets available to keep one organized and these must be religiously maintained. Staying organized is the one primary skill all students must always keep.
