If improving your English , Chinese , or Tagalog is your dream, I can help get you there.

At college in the the United states, I studied speech and theater with an emphasis on phonetics, vocal production, and performance. As an undergrad student, I was selected to perform speech labs where I helped foreign and American students to improve their pronunciation as part of their Teachers' Education requirements.

If improving your English , Chinese , or Tagalog is your dream, I can help get you there.

At college in the the United states, I studied speech and theater with an emphasis on phonetics, vocal production, and performance. As an undergrad student, I was selected to perform speech labs where I helped foreign and American students to improve their pronunciation as part of their Teachers' Education requirements.

Later on, these skills became beneficial in teaching ESL at Anne Arundel Community College. There I taught adults for ten years in courses that covered English grammar, writing, reading, vocabulary and, to the more advanced, persuasive organization in academic English. Because of my knowledge of languages, I successfully use analogies or comparisons in teaching language and culture to Asians and Latinos.

A previously attained graduate degree in Asian Studies and Chinese language, gave me the breadth of knowledge about East Asia that identified the cultural issues in communicating with Asian students. This degree also prepared me to teach introductory levels of Hanyu (Mandarin Chinese) which I did for eleven years. I am also qualified to teach Tagalog (Philippines).

My teaching method emphasizes an informal, participative, recursive approach, with students speaking constantly, informally or in formal presentations or readings. I am a highly motivating tutor, who supports students who have high hopes and great dreams.

Using a sense of humor, a knowledge of foreign languages, phonetics, and world cultures, I successfully taught ESL -at various levels -for 10 years at Anne Arundel Community College in Maryland. I have been a volunteer English tutor for an aggregate of about 3 years. I have an MA in Asian Studies and a BA in Speech and Theater. As part of my previous career in academic publishing, I wrote and edited marketing copy, trained sales people and made hundreds of presentations to decision-making committees at many colleges in the United States. I speak fluent Tagalog, can converse in Hanyu (Mandarin) and know the essentials of Spanish.
