I have been an English and English as a second language teacher/professor for twenty four years. I began teaching in a bilingual elementary school in Santa Ana, California, where my students were primarily limited English speakers. I taught first grade there for five years. I later began teaching English as a second language to adults in adult education and community college classrooms. I taught ESL and remedial English as an adjunct college instructor for ten years in Orange County and San Diego. I have taught at almost every community college in San Diego and Santa Ana College. I am currently a full time professor of ESL at Imperial Valley College, where I have taught for twelve years. I teach all areas and levels of English as a second language including listening and speaking, grammar and writing, reading and vocabulary, and specialized areas of English, such as verb tense, modals, phrasal verbs, sentence combining, and verbals. I am an expert in grammar and in teaching the development of basic writing and punctuation skills. I have taught students from all over the world. However, I have worked extensively with Vietnamese and Spanish speaking students. I am able to assist both native and non-native speakers of English. I can assist people of all ages, including children. I help people develop a well organized paragraph or composition, and I am also able to proofread writing for grammar, spelling, vocabulary usage, and punctuation. I am a popular instructor, who is very patient and understanding. I take great joy in helping people improve their English skills.
I was an elementary school teacher for five years. I taught at a bilingual school in
Santa Ana, California. My students were primarily limited in English, so I am an expert in teaching reading, writing, and spelling skills to children. I also have experience in teaching the basic mathematics skills. At that time, my school was classified as one of the best in the state of California due to its innovative language instruction.
I have been teaching English as a second language for twenty four years and have a Master's Degree in teaching English as a second language. I currently am a full time professor of ESL at Imperial Valley College, where I have taught for twelve years. I am an expert in grammar, vocabulary, including phrasal verbs, writing, and reading. I taught part time at a variety of community colleges in San Diego and Orange County prior to my current job and began my teacher career teaching limited English speaking children at a Santa Ana elementary school.
The most fundamental part of learning to read is connected to phonetic awareness. Children must learn the alphabet in order to begin and eventually master the reading process. I taught first grade for five years so am an expert in the teaching of phonics.
I was a very successful college student with an above average GPA. I was able to develop the study skills to graduate successfully from three different colleges with three degrees. I am also a community college professor who has advised college students for twenty years on what it takes to do well as a student. I can advise students in the areas from note-taking to preparing for an exam.
I can help with Paragraph and Composition Instruction.
