Hello! My name is Mary Ann and, I’m an experienced English as a Second Language (ESL) instructor. For the past seven years, I have taught Adult ESL with the Alexandria City Public School system. At the start of each semester, my students and I establish goals which combine their specific needs along with the State of Virginia requirements. Goals include (but not limited to) grammar, writing, pronunciation, and conversation skills. Together, we embark on a journey to achieve these goals. With the combination of hard work and positive reinforcement, my students learn the necessary skills to assimilation into the English language and the American culture.
I hold a B.A. from Carlow College, Pittsburgh, PA with a major in History and a minor in English. I obtained my M.A. from Georgetown University with a major in Liberal Studies, concentration in Government Relations.
I have worked in the communication field for more than 15 years in various writing positions. I have also worked in the insurance industry (health, retirement and risk management) for 10 years.
I have a great appreciation for history and literature in addition to an immense interest in government and politics. Contact me to talk about your particular needs and we can create a plan together to get you where you need to be.
B.A. degree in History.
I have been teaching adult ESL for more than seven years.
