Native English speaker with a Ph.D. and 10 years of university teaching experience offering ESL classes in Chicago, IL, USA (along CTA routes) and online

Methodology

I am a firm believer in multiple learning styles. Therefore, I assess my students' interests and styles when developing lesson plans. Some students learn best by reading while others respond best to music or movement. If you are simply looking for a native English speaker as your language exchange partner, I would be happy to chat about business, culture, entertainment, politics, and/or society. Just name your topics!

Background

I am a native English speaker with a Midwestern accent. I also have a Ph.D. in Communication, an M.A. in Organizational and Multicultural Communication, and a B.A. in Interdisciplinary Communications. I have taught Business and Professional Communication (Public Speaking) as well as other Communications courses at the university level for ten years, and I taught ESL in Daejeon, South Korea for two months in 1995.
