I want to help people improve their English. After a career helping students become successful in college as a college counselor, teacher, and administrator, I returned to school and earned my TESOL certificate. Since 2011, I taught ESL (English as a second language) to Adult students at the College of Lake County. I taught upper level ESL in an Intensive curriculum. I helped students improve their reading, writing, speaking, listening, and pronunciation skills.
In August of 2013 my wife and I relocated to downtown Chicago. I want to continue to help people improve their language skills. I have a student centered background. My teaching/tutoring agenda will be developed with you as we learn your goals, your strengths, and your weaknesses. I have adopted 2 sayings in my ESL teaching career:
MISTAKES ARE GOOD-------------PRACTICE-PRACTICE-PRACTICE
Although we may meet for only a few hours each week, I would like to help you explore how you can take advantage of using your time to enhance your English skills. I have incorporated music, media, and the Internet in my lesson plans. There are so many good Internet pronunciation, writing, and conversation tools for students.
Please contact me if you would like help improving your English skills. After a brief assessment, we will develop a plan of instruction. We will evaluate your progress.
Thanks for your consideration.
