I have worked with ESL students since 1995 and love learning so much from my international friends. I enjoy helping you improve your listening, pronunciation, writing, self-expression/conversation, and vocabulary skills, and I help edit written communications and assignments, etc.
I am comfortable with professionals or non-professionals, as well as visiting family or guests during their stay in our area. A good working relationship and hopefully friendship and cultural understanding is key to our success.
I am actively working with ESL at present and volunteer with SIU-C's international programs. I believe I have built a good reputation among local international students, scholars and others as being kind, patient, honorable, creating a comfortable environment in which to learn, and articulate while helping to improve their English proficiency.
