English Language Teacher offering lessons in the English language to children and adults. Over 11 years experience.

Methodology

Most of my experience has been with in public schools, teaching elementary-aged students. I have a little experience working with adults regarding the language of business. I infuse my lessons with visuals, music, art, movement and activities. at the beginning of each lesson we review what we learned previously, I introduce the language and academic objectives for the day, go through the lesson activities and ,together, review the objectives to see what we have achieved.

Background

I am a fully trained professional ESL teacher with two masters degrees. I have taught in public schools for over 11 years. My students have ranged from grades Kindergarten to eighth grade. Students have increased their levels of English language ability over the years I have worked with them as seen in their standardized assessments.
