I have been teaching for the past 14 years. While most of my focus has been on English and ESL, I have also helped students with math, science and test preparation. I have taught both children and adults. I have helped students from many countries including China, Japan, Korea, Mexico, and many others as well as American school children. I have also taught overseas. In addition, I have many years of experience working with individuals with disabilities. I will be happy to help you and your family!

During our first session, I will do an assessment of skills and discuss the goals of the student. Then I will develop a plan to improve skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening. I also find that many newcomers to the US have great difficulty with all the idioms and slang we use. I am happy to work on these skills to help the student live more comfortably in our area.

I have also taught with a special need such as business or technical English.

Please let me know how I may help you!

English

I have been an English teacher for many years. I have taught children of all ages and abilities. I have also taught adults. I have experience in helping students improve their skills in all aspects of English including reading, writing, listening and speaking. Based on the needs of the student, we work on grammar, pronunciation and sentence structure.

I have been teaching ESL for many years to international students and scholars. I have helped them improve their skills in all aspects of English including reading, writing, listening and speaking. We have worked on grammar, pronunciation and sentence structure. In addition, I help students to learn about American idioms, slang and proverbs. I have helped students of all ages, from preschool to senior citizens.

During this time, I have worked in a variety of positions, including as a sheltered workshop supervisor and director, job coach, employment counselor, medication administrator, residential support staff, QMRP, counselor, program specialist and residential director. I have worked with both children and adults in many areas including pre-vocational skills, activities of daily living, social and community skills, self-medication, problem solving skills, and others.
