I teach ESL to adults. I love languages and enjoy meeting and teaching foreign adult students. I think it's important for students to understand and speak English as it is really spoken, but, I insist that my students learn correct grammar when they write. I have many tricks to make it fun. I use a variety of resources to teach, including music lyrics and TV shows which are all good ways to get "an ear" for the language.
I am an Oxford certified ESL, TESOL, TESL teacher and have taken graduate classes in Bi-lingual Education, but in a way, I have been teaching English since Elementary school since my parents were immigrants to the USA from Peru.
I work at a non-profit Literacy organization in Austin and my job involves a lot of teaching.
