Hi!

I LOVE teaching international people! Teaching English is more than teaching language: it's teaching culture, too. And as I teach you, you teach me. I have taught beginners, intermediates, and advanced level learners in grammar, reading, writing, and listening. English conversation, business English, cooking, and music are some of the different ways I have used to help people learn.

I have a master's degree in foreign language education. The foreign language is English. I received this degree from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. I have taught people from Japan, Korea, Brazil, Venezuela, Italy, Spain, Portugal, China, Thailand, Eritrea, Yeman, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and several others as well. My travels have taken me as far east as Slovakia and as far west as Japan. As far north as Alaska and Iceland, and as far south as Barbados.

I am a Christian mother and wife. My husband is from Scotland, but we met in Portugal. My children are 13 and 9, a girl and a boy. We live in Allentown with our golden retriever, Lily. I enjoy reading, walking, thinking, listening to music, coffee with friends, watching movies and TV, and baking.

I hope I get to meet you!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

My training in ESL comes from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. In 1992 I received my Master's in Education for Foreign Language with English being the foreign language.

I have taught ESL in an intensive language school called CELL - Center for English Language Learning at Maryville College in Maryville, TN. I taught beginner, intermediate, and advanced level students in grammar, reading, writing, speaking and listening. I also did this in Nashville, TN at the International English Institute. I have also taught many private lessons in Tennessee, Portugal, and Pennsylvania. While in Portugal I taught EFL classes at Lancaster College but not in an intensive language situation. While there I was also able to teach at the university in Covilha.

Most of my private lesson students have been adults, but I have also taught middle school students.
