Language and Communication are my specialties.
I hold a Masters Degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages and have taught ESL: Reading, Writing, Speaking, Listening and Pronunciation in both adult and community college settings. I studied French for 8 years and lived in France as well, where I did private tutoring and taught English to business people. I have more than 20 years of teaching experience. I work with students on a one to one basis in order to uncover where the gaps in understanding exist. My approach is often multi-modal and always creative, as I believe that the pathways to understanding a particular subject area and the ability to progress in that area may come from other more familiar disciplines. For example, I am a visual person. I learned to write well when I was able to connect my visual abilities with the need and desire to write.
I have also worked in film and video, am an independent filmmaker with numerous awards and other credits. I can assist with some of the current editing programs: Final Cut Pro, Avid, Premiere, etc.
