Bio

My Master’s degree is in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. I have been teaching language for almost thirty-five years, both in classrooms and one-to-one. My career has taken me to many different parts of the world, but mostly to Africa, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Mexico, and Greece.

My Master’s degree is in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) from Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. I have been teaching language for almost thirty-five years, both in classrooms and one-to-one. My career has taken me to many different parts of the world, but mostly to Africa, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Mexico, and Greece.

When teaching, I follow Communicative Language Teaching principles and practices. What that means is that I work hard to plan lessons that actively engage and motivate learners. My lessons are not pre-packaged: I find out what you are interested in, and then design lessons around your interests and needs. I encourage you to use language to communicate rather than simply to learn it passively. I will introduce you to different learning strategies that can make language learning easier, drawing on my own experience learning foreign languages. I will show you that learning a language does not have to be boring, that it is more than simply rote learning and memorization. Language learning can be a truly enjoyable experience with the right teacher. Try me.

I have experience teaching all skills areas (Listening, Speaking, Reading/Vocabulary, Writing) as well as Grammar, Pronunciation & Accent Reduction. I also have a working knowledge of Spanish, French, Italian, Russian, Arabic, and Mandarin Chinese. This knowledge enables me to anticipate the kinds of errors that speakers of these languages make when learning English.

Feel free to contact me at any time if you have questions or want to schedule lessons. I look forward to working with you.
