I've taught English and ESL for about 10 years to students ranging from high school students to professional adults, some of them teachers themselves. And I've loved every minute of it!
I have taught in Oregon, Japan, Alabama, Washington (as a volunteer with Seattle Public Library) and now California. Some of my classes have had a speaking-presentation-pronunciation emphasis while others have focused on writing. My methods vary according the the skills we're working on but my approach remains the same no matter what: I believe in being encouraging. That's not to say that I'm shy about correcting mistakes! I just like to approach the process of learning and studying English with humor and fun because it's about effective communication after all, and I've found when you're happy and relaxed, you do your best work!
I'm also conscious of keeping things running on time, so I like to begin with the business of what we're learning and stay on track throughout the lesson.
I love to explore questions of culture and literature as well as the mechanics of the language.
I enjoy this profession because it's such a great opportunity for exchanging ideas and making new friends!
