I like to relate to the students interests and backgrounds. Student interaction is a big part of my teaching. I like to notice what the students may be having difficulty with on tests and assignments. I like to praise students when they do an assignment well. Usually, this includes comments on paper.
I taught school for over twelve years. I worked in business many more years. I am highly skilled in most computer applications. I taught: English, Business, Computers, ESL, History and Economics. I have tutored for a high school in Math and English.
