Learn English in a no-stress, supportive and encouraging environment! I have 15 years of experience teaching English to students from virtually every country in the world. I am culturally sensitive and I also speak Spanish. Learning Spanish was not an easy task, so I understand how frustrating learning a language can be. I will be there with you all the way! I have written an ESL textbook called "Musically Speaking" that uses original music and lyrics to teach grammar. The book was a project for the Pennsylvania Department of Education in 1992. I have also served as the Educational Coordinator for an ESL program in Philadelphia. While in that position, I wrote the curriculum for the program and developed and facilitated instructor trainings in ESL methodology.

I use innovative, interactive methodologies and techniques that engage the imagination and make learning a joyful experience. After we have achieved the appropriate level of fluency, I will accompany you on shopping trips or where ever you would like to go to excercise your newly acquired language skills. If you have a goal in mind or a specific need to learn English, I will tailor your lessons to meet that goal. No two students receive the same lessons. Lessons are tailored to meet the individual student's specific needs. Just let me know what you wish to accomplish, and we will get there.

I am excited about meeting you and helping you to develop your language skills. I have experience teaching all levels of English...beginning, intermediate or advanced; reading, writing, conversation and "life skills". If you need English to succeed on the job, I will create job-centered lessons just for you. So contact WyzAnt right now and let's get started!!!
