Hello, I am a recent immigrant to the United States. I have over 15 years of experience of teaching in public schools in Iceland and the United Kingdom and have taught French, Italian and ESL from grade 5 upto grade 12.
I use the communicative method of teaching with an emphasis on spoken everyday language. I use only the target language in my lessons and encourage my students to use the language they are learning as soon as possible in their lessons.
With more advanced students, I can help them perfect their written skills and increase their vocabulary. I had several dyslexic students in Iceland and use hands on methods to help them overcome their difficulties and gain more confidence in their own abilities.
My qualifications include a bachelors in French and Italian and a masters in ESL. I have lived in France, Italy and Quebec as well as Iceland and the United Kingdom.
