ESL/ESOL

I have both formal education in teaching foreign languages and many years of experience in teaching and tutoring people in ESL. I have native fluency in American English with almost no regional accent. I provide “real-world” language instruction with conversational emphasis, structured language, pronunciation, accent reduction, targeted vocabulary, and acculturation. I relate well to language learners and help them achieve their individual goals.

In addition to private tutoring, I teach English for non-native speakers for Berlitz International. And I have taught ESL/ESOL for Brookhaven College, for the University of Dallas (UD) English Language Services, for the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) English Language Services and for Central Texas Commercial (CTC) College. I am a writer, speaker, and trainer in multiple subject areas and use my broad communications skills to help my students.

In addition to helping business professionals with a variety of social and business-related language skills and teaching F-1 international students in all levels of ESOL classes, I have helped prepare individuals for TOEFL and citizenship testing; for high school and college courses; for the Cambridge ESOL CAE; and for other specialty areas, as needed.

I also teach seminars on resume writing skills and job interviewing skills, and I help individuals with their job resumes, interview skills, and interview practice.

Public Speaking

As a trained public speaker and trainer, I can help guide you in the fundamentals and finer points of public speaking and help you improve your public speaking abilities. I received my training through corporate training and Toastmasters International and have improved my skill through years of practice. I am trained and experienced in helping ESL adult students with public speaking to improve business and leadership skills.

My experience includes helping people learn and improve writing skills that make a positive difference in communications and achievement of desired results.
