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.
My approach to lesson planning is practicality. I choose topics that I believe will be interesting, engaging, and relevant to students. When students enjoy the lesson, they learn more, and it's more fun for me! My practical editorial and business communications experience makes me a stickler for correct syntax and grammar, but I'm especially skilled at hearing and correcting mispronunciation.
As an English instructor with over 30 years of experience, I have learned that my greatest strength lies in making complicated ideas simple and easy to understand. I have an excellent knowledge of grammar, which I am able to share with students in ways they can understand easily. I believe in having high standards for students, but also in having fun while learning.
I believe each student experience is unique based on the needs and skills of the student.
My education began in elementary until present. Graduated from high school where I have obtained my high school diplome in 1983. Continued my edcuational goals while working with the Federal Government as a GS-4 Clerk Typist. While beginning my continuing studies at Prince George's Community College in 1983.

* The Direct Method In this method the teaching is done entirely in the target language. The learner is not allowed to use his or her mother tongue. * Task Based Learning The focus of this method is on the completion of a task which in itself is interesting to the learners. Learners use the language they already have to complete the task and there is some correction of errors.
I like for my classes to be fun and interesting. I use many different resources to engage my students such as powerpoint presentations, videos, music, stories, pictures, and games. I like to teach phonics when teaching vocabulary since I believe phonics is a critical building block of speaking, reading, and writing the English language.
In addition to my qualifications, I have over 10 years experience teaching ESL in a variety of environments and across various backgrounds. My lessons are meticulously planned and I use carefully selected materials tailored to the students' needs.
I like to have a very personal touch and am sure to speak directly to you. If you need someone who will talk to you and look you in the eyes and listen to what you are saying I am always trying to make sure that conversation is one of the most important parts of the lesson. You can always ask for a more mechanical and technical lesson.
For my elementary school students I utilized games, story telling and other activities to help them better understand the language, usually starting with a theme and carrying it through for the school year. For middle school and high school students, I followed the academic program of the head teacher.

I adapt the methodology to the needs and level of the student. In order to ensure that classes were an enjoyable experience I always tend to work with topics connected with the interests of the student and address the most intriguing current public debates (e.g. for reading I use recent articles from English newspapers, for listening BBC material, etc.).
I am an English teacher and psychologist, a specialist in official exams, with more than 10 years of experience and a 95% pass rate. My accent is native (I have lived in different English speaking countries such as Ireland and Denmark), and I have studied the language up to the highest level of Cambridge, so my classes are rigorous and effective.

I like to tailor my classes based on the needs of my students. Although I have taught a wide range of ages and levels, I currently mainly teach adults who need to improve their English for work or study. For most of my students, we begin with a quick course in Pronunciation and Accent Reduction.
My teaching method is based on that of the Trinity Examination Board and, therefore, based on a real English; consisting of all the skills, preferring however the speaking (spoken) and listening (listening).
The student's needs and current level are addressed first with the objective of offering individualized and adapted attention. The methodology will be active and playful, with learning situations as real as possible so that the student can extrapolate them in a context of linguistic exchange.
I strongly believe that every person learns in their own way so our lessons would adapt as we progress according to your abilities and skills/interests.
I base my teaching methods on the 4 main principles of learning a language, reading writing listening and speaking. I am patient and firm and determined to help achieve success for my students. I have a good sense of humour and a wide range of local English expressions.
My classes are generally structured on the appropriate book according to the level and subject. However, I also adapt my teaching techniques to the desires of the students and communication is the key to success.
