Methodology

I use a variety of language-teaching methods, depending on student's preferences and age levels. My first language-learning experiences were academic ("chalk and talk"), but I have preferred to learn (and teach) through a mix of traditional and live, real-life, interactive language-learning methods. For academic subjects, I enjoy both leading and prodding for students' responses to the material. At times, this allows students to discover---through lateral thinking and simply drawing on parallel knowledge bases---their natural insights into the material.

Background

I have taught in classrooms and privately for over 30 years. I greatly enjoy the one-on-one approach, as it allows me to learn how the student thinks and learns and how to best "feed" my knowledge to the student, or elicit their own pre-existing knowledge. There have been times when a student's learning pace is so hungry and rapid that I nearly have difficulty keeping them "fed"; others have needed more prompting and goading. Both experiences are gratifying.
