About Denise

I have been teaching ESL my whole adult life, and have worked with students from all over the world. I have been at Norwalk Community College for the last 20 years. I have always enjoyed working with these students and I feel I am effective in helping them with both language and cultural adjustment concerns. I believe I can work with students on any aspect of English they may wish to focus on including listening, speaking, reading, writing, and pronunciation. I also have worked with students who work in the customer service field who would like to work on writing and speaking issues related to this line of work. I have also become qualified to tutor students for the TOEFL Exam.

When I meet with a student I I try to assess the student's level of English, needs and goals as a first step. Then I try to find the materials and methodology to best address those needs. Every student's situation is different I don't think it is possible to have one approach. It is also crucial that the student be engaged and enthusiastic about the aspect of English we are working on.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

ESL/ESOL

I have been teaching English as a Second Language for 30 years. When I first began teaching, I taught ESL in an elementary school for 6 years. I then a taught in an ESL pullout program in middle school, and for the last twenty years I have taught ESL in various community colleges, primarily Norwalk Community College in Norwalk Connecticut.

I have been teaching in the ESL credit division at NCC , with students who have some proficiency in English and wish to improve reading and writing skills primarily. I also teach English grammar classes. My students come from all over the world. For the most part students from every
new class come from an average of 15 different countries.

I have a masters degree in TESOL from University of California in Los Angeles.
