I am a retired international flight attendant with knowledge and experience of many different parts of the world. I speak functional Italian and French and have lived overseas for months at a time. I spent most of my career traveling to Europe and the Middle East and have friends from many countries in this part of the world.
I started teaching English after retirement and love the opportunity to bring new people into the global language, English. My method is to find what interests the student, be it business, cooking, decorating, etc. and having them learn how to talk about these subjects. I scan the media daily looking for articles for them to read, learn vocabulary, syntax, pronunciation, and discuss these subjects.
For beginners, I use a lot of role playing; making appointments on the phone, reading shopping ads from the newspaper, small talk on meeting strangers, etc. This system is usually a lot of fun for both the student and teacher.
I have taught Business English to executives for a major corporation, and I have taught English in a class environment to beginners. I love it all. I am known to be prompt and reliable for all lessons.
