All students who live in Queens and want to learn English please get in touch with me through my profile. Thank you very much.
I have found in my years of teaching ESL that lessons that work for adults are 100% geared toward the student's personal desires, interests and goals. Moving outside of these student-centered boundaries does not serve the student; working within these parameters brings exponential growth in language acquisition and implementation.

What a wonderful experience I had teaching in South Korea this summer. I taught at two summer camps for 10 days each. One camp was for 8th graders and the other for 6th graders. I taught a grammar intensive course called 'comic's and a vocabulary intensive one called 'directions around town'. The energy crisis made the classrooms and dorms very hot and muggy. We had to climb steep hills many times...

Although learning is awesome, it can be a difficult and frustrating journey for many students. This difficulty, however, is often times quite normal although most feel it means that a child may not be able to learn or that he/she is so frustrated that learning is no longer taking place. This is where the experienced tutor steps in; for frustration in learning is a part of the learning itself.
Thanks to those of you who take the time to read this. I would love to start a dialogue with you so feel free to write to me with comments.

One of the more frustrating things about tutoring is when students or their parents want to treat tutoring like a quick fix. In other words, sometimes they want to meet the night before a test and cram for said test in hopes of getting a better grade. On the surface, this problem might work, but it treats the symptoms rather than the root of the problem.
If you're going to take the time to...
