Greetings, adult learners, parents and future scholars! My philosophy
says it all: I have always believed that learning should not be a difficult process. I make learning fun and relatable. English
is merely a means of communicating thoughts, feelings and ideas. I teach students how to express themselves well and to feel GOOD about what they have to say. There are tips and tricks that I've shared with students in my 20+ years in education, and I've watched students experience success using what I teach them.
No two students are alike, so I approach each student's learning style with that in mind (even in a classroom of 37). Whatever the need--speaking, writing
, study skills
, test anxiety, doubt, fear of failure, etc.--allow my proven methods to render change in your outlook as a life-long learner.
I have taught grades 6, 7, 9, 10, 11 and 12, and have more than 14 years of experience as a college professor of English. I hold a current, valid teaching certificate for ESOL
and grades 6-12, English and Language
I can't wait to meet and work with you!

paragraph), are often reminded to start with a starter.
The starter is the eye-catching, attention-grabbing statement your reader sees...
