I am a recently retired high school teacher who has taught English as a Second Language, regular English and social studies for many years. Over the years I have enjoyed working with students from many different ethnic and language backgrounds, including students with learning disabilities. I have experience teaching reading skills, literary analysis, writing and grammar, and I have prepared students for standardized tests. My teaching style depends on the needs of the student. I enjoy working one-on-one or with groups of students.
I have many years of experience teaching ESL in a large high school in Boston, where I worked with students from all over the world. My students came from Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Europe, and they spoke many different languages. I also taught for three years in Zimbabwe, where the official language is English, but where my students spoke several different first languages. I have lived and studied or taught in six different countries in Africa and Europe, and have traveled widely on both continents. I have also traveled in Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean islands. English is my native language, but I also speak French, Spanish and Tshiluba (from the D.R. Congo, and I know a little Portuguese and Haitian Creole. I love working with people from different cultures and language backgrounds, because I have learned a lot from them over the years.
I have had more than 30 years' experience working with my own children, who have very different learning styles, and as a secondary school teacher of ESL, English and social studies. As both a teacher and a parent, I have helped children and adolescents develop strategies for effective reading, writing and test preparation. As a teacher I took courses and participated in in service training on study skills and effective reading and writing, and on occasion I also led training sessions for my colleagues.
