My teaching career began over 20+ years ago after I graduated from Auburn University with a degree in English/Education. I feel I am a natural teacher with the ability to communicate with my students so that they are interested in the material and look forward to coming to my class. I started out as a middle school teacher teaching grammar and literature. I went back to school and received a Master's degree from North Georgia College and began teaching at the college level. In fact, North Georgia was so impressed with my 4.0 GPA, I taught there at North Georgia College. I taught composition, literature, and grammar there.
When I moved to Florida, I had the opportunity to teach at Edison State College on the Gulf Coast; then I moved to the East Coast of Florida and taught at South University, and Broward College where I taught composition, literature, and grammar. I also taught test-taking skills, reading for comprehension, essays, and research papers. I have also tutored students in English and prepared them for college-level tests. I feel my extensive experience makes me an asset to any institution. I like to give many examples so that students can relate to concepts and make the learning logical and fun. I feel anyone who works with me will find me professional and easy to understand. I feel I would be an asset to any institution.
I have taught English from the 7th grade to the college level, with over 20 years experience. I also have worked with every age group in a tutoring position.
I have over 20 years experience teaching English.
I have taught a unit on study skills every year that I taught at the middle and high school level.
This unit includes how to prepare for exams by using organizational skills such as maintaining a notebook for each class with notes to prepare students for tests.
Study skills also include learning how to read for content, how to understand vocabulary by using the sentence to place the word in context, and to write effective sentences, paragraphs, essays, and research papers.
