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. To me, communication is power.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
Learning a new language is challenging, and I have great respect for people who are willing to do so. I am a TEFL-certified instructor who has been working with ESL students, businesspeople, and others for over 30 years. I am used to working with both groups and individuals. In either case, customization is crucial to success. Language lessons include grammar, listening, reading, writing, and speaking. I love doing this work, and I feel lucky to do something that is so rewarding.
