For the past 36 years I have taught and tutored professionally in education in 5 nations at university level including the United States, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong. I teach ESL/EFL English, specializing in English for academic and business communication and pronunciation. I also teach personal communication/conversation. In my ESL teaching I use the Communicative Method. I like teaching ESL and seeing lessons make a difference in an ESL learner's life. Communicating in a second or third language can be challenging and I enjoy helping people communicate more effectively whether for academics, business or personal communication. I enjoy learning about my learners' cultures along the way. I have taught and tutored the IELTS and TOEFL exams for 36 years.

I also tutor university students in their humanities courses; almost everything except math and science. I teach university level students how to learn more effectively and to organize themselves in order to perform more efficiently in their academic lives. Seeing student grades go up directly as a result of our tutorials is professionally rewarding for me.

My experience living in Asian cultures and being a second language learner myself ( I speak, read and write Thai ) have allowed me to understand SLA (second language acquisition) from the eyes of the ESL learner, and so I am able to empathize with my students from the perspective of a 2nd language learner. In addition to my BA in International Relations I have a certification in teaching ESL from my hometown, Madison, WI. I have been teaching ESL/EFL for 36 years.

I previously taught a Thai conversation course while teaching academic English at the Asian Institute of Technology in the early 2000's in Bangkok. My students were international students pursuing their graduate degrees at AIT and found it beneficial while living in Thailand to learn the language. Since I am fluent in Thai conversation and am a native English speaker, I was able to explain the Thai language and culture to the students. I found teaching Thai conversation courses very enjoyable.

As an experienced, professional ESL/EFL teacher, and tutor of university humanities courses, my professional life has been thus far full and rewarding in helping people to learn, communicate and achieve while I learn about other cultures and keep abreast of university life and students' academic demands. I look forward to working with you.
