I have taught students with learning differences for many years, primarily teens or adults due to my knowledge of English vocabulary. I often amazed my students by providing definitions not shown in the text. Some students called me "Mr. Dictionary". I would even show where the oddities of spelling originated from the history of English. Though my experience is with learning differences, I can easily work with others, no matter their background.
