Having received lifetime French and English certifications in Pennsylvania, I have subsequently taught in Ohio, Indiana, and Texas. Tutoring is especially satisfying, to see the students improve their grades and their proficiency. Teaching languages, French, English, ESL and beginning Spanish, using textbooks, worksheets, games, Internet, whatever it takes, is my specialty.
I have taught in Ohio, Indiana, and Texas. I had several students last year that were diagnosed with dyslexia. I did not understand how their thought processes worked until I researched dyslexia on the Internet. Dyslexic students are usually very bright and creative. They are more right-brained than left-brained. Teaching phonics to them does not work. It only adds to their frustration. I have read about the Davis system where mastering the alphabet, using kinetic processes, is of utmost importance before tackling reading. Reading is by sight or by a sweep-spell method. I would be interested in working with those diagnosed with dyslexia.
I have been teaching ESL for several years. I taught students enrolled at Indiana University in Indianapolis prior to moving to Houston. Here, I volunteer with Montgomery County Literacy and have taught ESL to many international residents in group settings or on an individual basis. I enjoy it.
I have lifetime French and English certifications in Pennsylvania. Study skills involve organization of place and materials, knowing how to take notes, when to study, and time management. Creating incentives and rewarding oneself are vital to the studying and test-taking process. Test taking skills are also important.
These skills I usually discuss with the students as I help them with their subject matter. It is an intrinsic part of the learning process.
