In mathematics, word problems have been known to pose challenges for elementary school students, middle school students and even some high school students. In addition, a vast majority of students also have difficulties with solving problems with fractions. If we mix a word problem with a problem with fractions, then we end up getting an even tougher problem to solve. How can we expect those students...
Here is a handy resource I made after I couldn't find a decent free one on Google. It works for any level of vocabulary-building exercises...
Ideas for Using Authentic Texts with Low-level ESL Classes
Are you sick of using contrived reading texts and dialogues in your low-level classes? Don't be afraid to bring in authentic reading materials. On top of fostering practical skills, students get a charge out of talking about something real. Here are some suggestions:

ESL Conversation Question - ESL Conversation Practice Lessons
One of the most difficult tasks for ESL teachers is to teach students to converse meaningfully in English. ESL students have been speaking foreign languages for many years, and it may be difficult for them to make the necessary adjustments to speak English comprehensibly and fluently. ESL teachers can help their students communicate...

This is advice that I always give to my students for the in-person classes that I teach. In order to excel in any subject that one is learning, it is important that you do the following:
Go to class every day. Missing classes (whether they are in-person or online) is missing opportunities to learn!
Do your homework. Complete the assignments that you are given. Instructors give...
What do we mean when we say that we are in or at a
place? These two small words can be instrumental in helping us to reveal (and conceal) exactly where we are in the world and, crucially, how we feel about being there. Take the sentence, 'I'm at school'. Seemingly simple on the surface, but can't we say, 'I'm in school' too? So, if they both sound fine, why does 'I'm in/at classroom' sound...
So, we’ve explored the idea of in and at as ways to describe where we are and what we are doing there and found that it's a little bit more than just buildings and borders. In this post, we'll take a look at how using or omitting articles can help us to express how we feel about the places we are in.
Before we begin, let's agree that articles are pretty much the most horrendous part...

Yes, there is a cure for dyslexia. However, the cure is unreachable for most students. Every child facing the dyslexia label needs an individual "toolbox" with unlimited learning supplies. Those "toolbox" supplies need to be (1) whatever teaching methods (even sometimes) make learning easier for that child, (2) unlimited access to educators whose primary concern is raising...
Hello, Manhattan! As you may have noticed, I moved to Manhattan. I hope you would welcome me with more students. Please see my profile for more information. I only would like to add that I am flexible with my schedule. Thank you very much.
I offer every student and/or every parent to rate my lessons. As a result, quality of my lessons is not that hard to guess. I offer the most respectful attitude to my clients. The result of that attitude is a very positive feedback. I like to tutor people of any age. The result of that is a wide range of student from various communities. I love to explain and converse with my clients instead of...
From my experience, designing a lesson for one student could be challenging due to not being able to include group or pair-work, which is not only a great way for the students to apply what they have just learned with a fellow classmate allowing them to feel more comfortable to make mistakes but also gives the teacher the opportunity to walk around and listen in and find common errors that can...
Using unusual resources make my tutoring lessons more fun. Especially when teaching ESL, using Netflix or FireStick to call up particular shows in English that
interest my students (I use their suggestions) are very useful while providing the motivation needed for language learning in the moment. The students want to know it all--idioms, American or British common sayings, and more...

I have been involved education as long as I can remember. My parents were educators. They helped start a school, were on the board of another, and were founding board members of the North Dakota Home School Association. I started teaching at the age of thirteen, as a volunteer. I have taught professionally, for over fourteen years. I have coached soccer. I co-founded a school and taught a wide...
