Bio

Hi, my name is Deany. I just moved to Portland from Kansas City, Missouri. I have a Master's degree in Teaching English as a Second Language. I have 6 years of experience teaching ESL to adults in academic settings. I tutored for two years before that. I am currently teaching at a Community College.

Hi, my name is Deany. I just moved to Portland from Kansas City, Missouri. I have a Master's degree in Teaching English as a Second Language. I have 6 years of experience teaching ESL to adults in academic settings. I tutored for two years before that. I am currently teaching at a Community College.

I am very active in seeking out professional development, so I am up to date on current ESL teaching trends and techniques. I know how to adapt my methods to the needs of my students as I know that everybody learns differently. I try to make lessons interesting to the individual student and find out what their purpose for learning the language is, because I know interest must be engaged for a student to remember the material being taught and that the material must be relevant to the student. I don't have formal experience teaching children, but I home school my son. However, if you are interested in me as a tutor for your child, I am knowledgeable in the differences in the needs of children and adults and how language is learned.

My students would tell you that, should you choose me as your teacher/tutor, you should be prepared to work. I will not teach you by observation; I will teach you by making you use the language. I believe in plural-lingualism, which means I believe you need your own language to learn another one. If we are having a hard time communicating, I will use a translator. I am not an English only teacher. My students love me and they learn a lot from me because I push them and challenge them. When we are finished you will know the material you hired me to teach you. However, I can only help you as much as you are willing to help yourself. If you are ready to work, then I look forward to meeting you.
