About Karen


Bio

I've been teaching ESOL and foreign languages (French, Spanish and Portuguese) for more than 20 years. I love working with students because they are energetic whether they love language or not. It's great to see the expression on a person's face when they learn a new concept. I've traveled to 15 different countries and spent time studying and working in France and Brazil. Recently I've been working at an international language school - substitute teaching, providing immigration advice, and...

I've been teaching ESOL and foreign languages (French, Spanish and Portuguese) for more than 20 years. I love working with students because they are energetic whether they love language or not. It's great to see the expression on a person's face when they learn a new concept. I've traveled to 15 different countries and spent time studying and working in France and Brazil. Recently I've been working at an international language school - substitute teaching, providing immigration advice, and arranging student activities like sports days and visits to fun sights in D.C.

I've been teaching ESL/ESOL for more than 20 years. Although I normally work with college age students, I have a good rapport with younger students too. Having been an international student myself, I understand how hard it is to adjust to a new language and culture. I've spent loads of time talking with students about what they love or hate about living in a new culture. I've also taught TOEFL preparation and writing focused classes for students preparing to enter college.

I majored in French (Language and Literature) after spending time as an exchange student in France. In college, I also studied Spanish and Italian and went on to study Portuguese years later. I have visited Brazil several times and spent a short time there as an interpreter for my employer in the U.S. Since I work with international students, I speak Portuguese, French and Spanish daily. My advisees say that I am kind and friendly, so you won't have to feel stressed about learning a new language.

If you have any questions about my teaching methods or want to discuss how you learn best feel free to contact me.
