About Tim


Bio

I've been a teacher for more than 10 years. I've loved working with students learning English--high school students or adults at a community refugee center. I value flexibility, offering instruction in a classroom, an office building, or a library or other public setting.

I've been a teacher for more than 10 years. I've loved working with students learning English--high school students or adults at a community refugee center. I value flexibility, offering instruction in a classroom, an office building, or a library or other public setting.

With high school students, I co-taught public speaking, using the Toastmasters model. The emphasis was on writing structure, using personal narrative and speaking poise. I provide specific and encouraging evaluation of students' writing facility and their presentation style. Speaking competence and self-confidence are outcomes. Students trust the value of their own experience; through a structured format, they take the risk to share with others --in the classroom, and beyond the classroom.

My teaching has encompassed formal, curriculum-based training, on-the-spot training, coaching of speaking skills and one-on-one tutoring. My approach is to listen and elicit. Honoring each person's uniqueness is core to my belief, but also strategic in helping someone to strengthen learning skills.

Whether English is a first or second language, I offer a strengths-based environment, emphasizing a student's previous work and accomplishments. I look forward to working with you towards strengthening your skills and your confidence.

Public Speaking

I am a 21-year member of Toastmasters International, whose focus is the strengthening of public-speaking confidence and skills. For 10 years, with a club colleague, I coached public speaking --using the Toastmasters method-- to junior and senior public high school marketing students. I both tutored and substitute taught in public high schools for four years. And, for four to five years, I acted in Phoenix and Tempe, AZ community theaters.
