I'm a retired English teacher who can help you with its quirky ways. I had a wonderful education at Grinnell College, one of the best small liberal arts schools in the U.S. At Grinnell I learned that learning is lifelong, so I've been at it ever since, reading, working and teaching.
Friends' kids tell me I'm a good teacher, as do my ESL students. ESL students range from pre-literate to foreign university students studying in the U.S. and professionals preparing for the TOEFL exam. I pay attention to how each personally needs to be taught. I think most learning is best retained when it answers a student's own questions, so it's my job to help a student see the questions and discover the answers.
