I am a licensed, experienced teacher with a Master's Degree in Education and am certified as an ESL teacher. During many years as a professional teacher, I have worked with both adults and children.

I have tutored students privately and taught ESL at a language school to students who wanted to advance in their careers.

In teaching ESL, my focus is on improving conversation, use of proper grammar, sentence structure, reading comprehension and writing. I will prepare lessons to meet your specific needs so that you will quickly see positive results.

I have traveled extensively and have tutored students from Asia, Europe and Latin America.

In working with young children, I follow a syllabus which will reinforce their school work. I promote motivation and self confidence.

Our lessons together will be enjoyable and interesting. I am available to tutor weekdays at your convenience. Let me know your schedule.

Handwriting

As a former elementary school teacher, I am aware of how good handwriting aids in language development. I taught handwriting to young children (both printing and cursive) taking into consideration the proper formation (strokes) of a letter. I taught first by demonstration, then by imitation and in cursive writing, I showed students how to connect the letters to form a word. I taught capitals first, then lower case, grouping letters of similar formation.

As a certified, experienced teacher, I understand the importance of good study skills to promote learning and good grades. I engage the student in setting goals, managing time, organizing papers, doing homework and proper studying for tests. It is helpful to create a study plan stressing the importance of a proper study environment and discussing the best time to study. It is advisable to use different techniques for auditory learners vs. visual learners. My goal is to promote motivation and to help the student avoid procrastination.
