About Monica

Providing instruction in English as a Second Language (ESL) and preparation for the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Would you like to learn English? Living in a foreign country is challenging, learning to speak English can make it great. I am a Certified TEFL Instructor. I have a Master's degree in Clinical Social Work, MSW, and have taught in elementary through high school teaching Health classes with foreign students. I have lived abroad and understand the need for communicative and conversational language development.

Tutoring in specific areas that you desire to improve upon is the first priority. The method of instruction, if needing to learn the language as a whole, will be the following: teaching vocabulary, pronunciation, speaking and conversation, listening, grammar, reading, and writing. I also currently work in the local school district providing psycho-educational groups for public schools in k-12th grades.

Please contact me for further information and questions. I look forward to speaking with you and working together.

ADD/ADHD

I have worked with students with ADD/ADHD for thirteen years in classrooms teaching Health classes in public schools and in small groups, counseling. I have a background in Developmental Disabilities and this was my specialty area in graduate school. I did a year-long internship at Riley Children's Hospital, Indianapolis diagnosing and working with children with ADD/ADHD and behavioral and developmental disorders. I also have my Master's in Social Work.

ESL/ESOL

Certified ESL, TEFL, TESL Instructor. Have taken an intensive 100 hour course in Teaching English as a Second Language. Teaching communicative grammar instruction, comprehending structures and terminology, pronunciation, listening, speaking, reading, and writing and teaching a practicum.

I have previous teaching experience, four years in teaching middle and high school students in a Health curriculum. Have also taught seminars with adults and families in schools as a forum with mental health.

I have lived abroad in Prague, Czech Republic and traveled extensively. I understand the essential need to speak the native language of the culture where one is living and / or working.

Photography

As a photographer that does portraits professionally and fine art, I would be happy to teach the technical and artistic concepts to take your photography to the next level. I have a strong foundation of photography and how the essential elements of light and speed must be learned before one can begin to shoot artistically. These elements are understanding ISO, Shutter speed, and Aperture. All three of these elements I have mastered through experience, workshops, seminars, and online classes.
