Kutztown University (Master's)
I am passionate about teaching and am willing to go the distance to help each student succeed. I hold a master's degree in English/ Secondary Education, a PA credential and have over 15 years teaching experience, primarily with high school and adults students. Additionally, I hold a CLAD ( Cross cultural Language Acquisition and Development ) certificate from Stanford and enjoy working with ESL students. I have a proven success rate and have been the recipient of teaching accolades, including Who's Who Among American Teachers, Who's Who Among American Women, and National Honor Roll's Outstanding Teacher.
I have worked with students with learning disabilities and Ph.D s, from kindergarteners to adult seniors, so individualizing lessons to meet the student's needs is my forte. I am passionate about literature and writing, and have taught high school English grades 7-12 , so I have a familiarity of the classic literature and expectations of each grade level. I also have enjoyed working with college students and adults. I am well versed in all genres of literature and writing and have taught all areas of ESL, as well, including, grammar, pronunciation, conversation,writing and test prep. Once I access student needs and goals, I prepare thoroughly for each lesson, employing individualized teaching methods to best suit the student and situation. I believe every student, with motivation and effort, is able to succeed, and I do whatever I can to assist him.
I have a 24 hour cancellation policy, but I am happy to schedule makeup classes, if the need arises.
