I am a retired Teacher of English and a Retired High School Principal. I completed my ESL Certification in July of 2015 for the purpose of continuing my teaching career after retirement. My goal is to move to Costa Rica and continue with my online students once I have relocated there. While living in Costa Rica I also plan to study Spanish.
Through my TESOL training and years of experience in the classroom, I have seen the importance of designing lessons to fit the needs of specific learners.
I like to focus on pronunciation while I'm teaching and my students have told me that they appreciate that very much. Whether I'm teaching grammar or conversational English, I feel that correcting any and all types of pronunciation problems is critical to the learning process.
In regards to my methodology for language teaching, I enjoy applying principles of content-oriented teaching which are used in tandem with the direct method and other constructs of communicative language teaching styles (e.g. employing dialogues, role-play, and problem-solving tasks).
I do a free evaluation with each student before creating lessons personalized specifically based on the evaluation. I create your lessons based on what you want to focus on, your level of English, and your preferred learning style. My main goal is to have the student produce as much language as possible. That means the student will be doing the most speaking, reading, and writing.
I do a great job at mediating lessons and ensuring the student has ample talk time to practice whatever we are studying. I will work with the student to set clear goals and provide an achievable, structured curriculum that we can work through together.
I teach English using the last ESL teaching methodologies and approaches, such as Task-based language learning and critical approaches. This way, my students learn English through meaningful tasks. I always plan my lessons taking into consideration my students' interests and needs.
Teaching is a passion. Out of passion flows ideas and creativity. Out of passion flows the desire to impact and influence the lives of the students that we encounter and students who come across our paths. Out of passion flows the deep interest to dig out the skills and talents that lie beneath the core of the students.
My motto as an educator is, “If they’re not learning, you’re not teaching.” This idea is at the core of my teaching philosophy. I am most interested in the teaching and learning process and how the traditional limits of these pursuits can be challenged.
I base my lessons on each student's needs. I have audio lessons for listening practice, have created exercises for reading comprehension, and will design activities based on you! I have recently published books designed to teach reading and vocabulary.
I am an energetic and fun teacher with experience teaching kids up to adults in the UK and Spain. My style is engaging and focuses on making students learn whilst having fun.

I base my teaching on what students want to achieve. When I first meet a student; I find their level, goals and trouble spots. I then develop individualized curriculum that helps them meet those goals. My overarching goal is for my students to speak English with confidence.
I am student-centered. My goal is for the student to have fun and be confident. I use books, games, and technology. I try to have different activities so students stay interested and practice language in many different ways. I track improvement and am very encouraging.

Present the content. 5. Provide learning guidance. 6. Elicit performance (practice). 7. Provide feedback. ... 8. Assess performance.

Want to improve your conversational English? Let's talk about it.

I believe the best way to teach English is from the bottom up. That is, from student to teacher. The teacher is a guide. I base my teaching on how advanced the student is in the language and subject area. We will learn by reading, writing, and speaking. We will be able to arrange a meeting place since the learning environment is very important.
Learning is a lifelong process of joy and dedication. I believe in spontaneity and fun in teaching as well as what is practically and relevant to the lives of my students! I am patient, humorous and flexible as a teacher. I don't really care for memorization and drills.
I am a positive thinking and energetic teacher who provides an atmosphere students feel comfortable learning in. Each student's level is evaluated and learning goals are set. Lessons are then geared to the needs, level, and abilities of the student. Students enjoy the learning process.
I had a major and a Master's in Foreign language instruction.
I have a BA from the University of California in San Diego in Biology and an additional three years postgraduate study at San Diego State University in Biology. I have nearly forty years work history in both science and education.
