I truly love teaching and seeing my students grasp and understand concepts they previously didn't "get." Learning can be fun and it's important to me to have my students enjoy the process. I give clear information, easily understood for each individual to learn quickly.

My credentials include my Bachelor of Science in English with a life-time teaching certificate from Texas A&M, Commerce, Texas. I taught ESL to adult students at the Literary Council of Austin. I organized and prepared the lesson plans for each class, choosing appropriate aids and tools to assist their learning process in speaking and writing English. I taught ESL to Japanese students at a language school in Honolulu,HI The students were aged 8 through to adult. I tutored adults persons in Dallas whose primary language is Spanish. They improved their speaking skills and vocabulary.

My method of instruction and communication is based on each unique student and his or her pace. I believe real listening is an essential part of this process. The next step is clarifying what I hear with the person I am helping. I believe in encouragement and positive input to reinforce the student's confidence in himself or herself. If students believe in themselves, they will achieve a higher level of success in their learning process and be able to apply what they learn in later life. That is the objective of all teaching.
