I am a TEFL teacher, certified by the TEFL Institute, Bangkok, Thailand. I focus on understanding everyday spoken English. I have seven years of TEFL experience and have been well received by my students. I have classroom, one-on-one and online experience, I have a Master's Degree in Technical Management from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore and an undergrad degree from the University of Maryland. I have also authored a publication on tax reform, hardy related to ESL, but still an accomplishment. TEFL teaching is actually my retirement career. I worked for Northrop Grumman/Westinghouse as a Training Manager for 41 years. During that period I ventured into just about every aspect of vocational training. My job took me overseas for 20 of those years. I lived (not visited) in Germany, Spain, Algeria, Venezuela, Saudi Arabia and Thailand. Those experiences are treasured, and, I like to think, educationally rewarding Do you remember when you had your first conversation with your playmates? I bet you talked with them about parts of speech, transitive verbs, predicate nominatives and a myriad of other English grammar stuff. Sure you did! Let's push that nonsense aside and focus on learning to speak, listen and understand this hodge-podge of languages called English. I can help you do that. And, you'll be happy when you can. So,.... wadda ya say, ... wadda ya wanna du? I am a TEFL teacher.

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.
I have completed The TEFL Institute course and have been awarded a certificate. I have nine years experience teaching ESL. My ESL students have come from Thailand, Russia, Slovakia, Brazil and China. Most of my ESL experience has been with online students however I have and am currently engaged in traditional classroom settings. I am a Guest Teacher in the Lee County School District.
