I have been teaching the English as a Second Language to adult students of all levels of language proficiency for over ten years at Questar III in Hudson, N.Y. and have had students from Europe, Asia, Africa, the Philippines, Central and South America as well as the West Indies. I have taught students who need basic "survival English" and have taught more academic English for students who wish to gain their GEDs or enter college, and am qualified to teach Industry Specific English to those who wish to enter particular area of work, including medical, industrial and business fields. I also have helped students gain the skills needed to pass the U.S. citizenship test and interview.
The speaking lessons are tailored to to have my students achieve a fluency and ease with American spoken English. My goal is not to make the student sound like an American, but to assure that his/her pronunciation, tone and rhythm increases communication rather than obstruct it.
I strive to make lessons interesting, relevant and enjoyable. I believe that an engaged and personalized student is the best learner.
