If you are interested in learning English
or improving your current English language
proficiency, I can help you.
Learning a language can seem daunting, but don’t be intimidated! By taking advantage of what you already know, we can make learning English enjoyable and meaningful, while alleviating whatever anxieties you may have.
I can provide you with traditional English grammar
and syntax instruction, help you to develop your interpersonal conversational skills, teach you vocabulary
, and show you techniques to increase your vocabulary on your own, so that you will have the ability to solve problems of comprehension as they arise, and excel
in the classroom and on standardized tests.
With regard to reading
, I can show you techniques that will help you gain better comprehension, and develop an intrinsic sense of pleasure, while you unlock the meanings of a text. I will also help you become a better writer by showing you ways to develop a personal process and break down the barriers that sometimes hinder the writing
Respecting the value of culture inherent in all human beings, my main mission is to help English language learners to acquire the English language as proficiently as possible without diminishing or undermining their native language or cultural background. To this end, I will research a student’s native culture and language, and utilize audio, visual, and Internet
tools to not only make the student’s experience intuitive and meaningful, but enjoyable as well.
My previous personal background as a graphic designer has impressed upon me the human need for creative and intuitive personal experiences while interacting with and learning language, so I will seek to make the lessons as fun and interesting as possible without lowering standards.
I am presently at the end stage of achieving my E.S.L. teaching certification at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee and plan to be teaching soon at MPS. This freshly obtained experience allows me to be aware of what is required to do well at school and apply the latest language teaching methods to help a student to be successful.
