Bio

I have taught English as a Second Language both in adult classroom situations (in commercial schools) and as a part-time tutor for several years. I have also been a volunteer at the International Center in New York City, providing free English-language instruction for individual young adults from overseas, usually persons on student visas or recent immigrants.

I have taught English as a Second Language both in adult classroom situations (in commercial schools) and as a part-time tutor for several years. I have also been a volunteer at the International Center in New York City, providing free English-language instruction for individual young adults from overseas, usually persons on student visas or recent immigrants.

I am a firm believer in the "Whole Language" approach to language learning. In adhering to these principles, I always address the individual students' needs, desires and goals in order to make my lessons both meaningful and purposeful. In this way I adopt the role not merely of teacher, but of learning facilitator. In this way, progress conforms to the student's expectations, and not merely to the objective standards of any text book. My relevant degree is a Master of Education (M.Ed) specializing in Bilingual Education/ESL (awarded in 1995). My Master's Thesis was on the adult production of questions, for which actual classroom instruction was required.
