I have been a teacher for more than 30 years, Mostly at College level. I have also taught in High School. I have a Teacher Degree to teach English as well as a Master Degree in Applied Linguistics. I am from Chile and I came to study my Master Degree in Library Science at LSU 18 years ago. Then, I was given the possibility to pursue my Ph D in Education that I completed in 2002. I have also taught College Study Skills, a subject I believe is essential to follow to face the real university life.
I can also teach Spanish and Portuguese as they are my first languages.
I love outdoors life and the Acadian culture, more exactly the Cajun and Zydeco music, so that's why I decided to stay here.

ESL/ESOL

As a foreigner, I know the difficulties implied behind learning English. So, I am quite sensitive and ready to help in the different necessary skills. I have taught ESL /ESOL at the College level, while completing my Master and Ph.D. degrees.
My first languages are Spanish and Portuguese that I have also taught them in the USA as a Second Language.
I absolutely believe that learning English is the best way to be prepared to stay here and also, to work in this modern world of global communications.

Study Skills

I have a long experience teaching Study Skills in the school system, mainly Middle School, and in College. I was one of the first Professors teaching this subject at LSU in the South LA Community College in Lafayette, LA. Quite essential subject nowadays, I mean, I have taught students how to take tests, how to read effectively to learn ans apply this skill to everything they read later on in life, I have taught how to use the library in the best possible way, I have taught how to write from simple paragraphs or journals to whole essays and the, use this skills in all the subjects they
have to study in school or college.
