My name is Mary. I have 20 years experience as an educator both in high school and adult education. I have designed curriculum, and developed programs for my students. I have taught classes of 30+ students and tutored one on one.
I am a professional educator specializing in the English and Spanish languages. My primary focus has been recognizing and using the basic similarities and differences between the two languages to augment instruction. I am adept at working with all learning styles and abilities.
I have been teaching ESL for the past 19 years. I am adept at working with all learning styles. I am especially good at recognizing the similarities between languages and using those similarities to augment instruction.
I love reading. I know it is the foundation for all other subjects. I taught both of my own children to read in both English and Spanish. I am a proponent of phonics and have used it to facilitate reading instruction in my ESL classes.
I hold a BA in Spanish Language and Literature from NIU. I have traveled to Mexico, Costa Rica and Cuba. I have worked for the past 19 years teaching mostly Spanish speaking foreigners how to speak English.
A big part of the work I have done for the past 20 years is vocabulary instruction. I understand how to increase vocabulary retention. I have developed fun ways to learn vocabulary and enjoy practicing them with my students.
I am a published writer. My publication "Simon Bolivar the Statesman" won third prize in the Jose Marti Society's contest at Rice University in Houston. I enjoy writing very much and would love to help your student learn to write well and enjoy it also.
