To me, communication is power. My goal with all my students is to help them be as clear and precise as they want to be. I have worked with both corporate clients as a writing consultant and beginning English students as a certified ESL teacher. My teaching is as interactive as possible; the more I talk, the less someone learns.Fun is important, so humor and some games help in many situations.
I tend to be on the conservative side of grammar, even though social networking is changing the language rapidly. Through all my work, customization is key. However, certain basics are necessary to ensure clear speaking and writing, and I concentrate on those areas if they are weak. Teaching brings me great satisfaction, and nothing is better than putting myself out of business with a student who has learned what was intended.
