« I have known Carol Baker for 48 years. She and I taught school at the same high school. She has always been conscientious and has done an outstanding job as both a teacher and as author. Carol has always done more than was required of her. When she was teaching, she made sure that her students understood the curriculum being taught. When she saw that her students weren’t comprehending the material, she took time to retract it. She used teaching techniques which allowed both her higher-level and academically challenged students to achieve. After retiring from teaching, Carol could have been content to spend her retirement years relaxing, but instead chose to write a children’s book. After the book was published, Carol presented programs at both private and public’s schools to show teachers how the book can be used to teach many concepts of the curriculum for various subjects. Carol has received and continues to receive many accolades from teachers and administrators for her outstanding presentations. »

Background

I have been teaching ESL for over 25 years to both children and adults in American and International educational settings in traditional and virtual classrooms with individual and small groups. My passion is English grammar and Reading. I have shown proven ability to increase students' listening, speaking, reading, and writing proficiency in English and understanding of aspects of American culture.

I worked with Carol at Spring Valley Elementary for six years during the 2006-2012 school years. She delivered ESL instruction to my second grade English Language Learners.
She was prompt, reliable, and focused in her instruction. I would recommend her, because she loves children and helping them conquer language barriers. She is an expert in the area.

Carol is a dedicated teacher and the most knowledgeable English teacher I know. She has years of experience teaching all grade levels in English grammar and proficiency. Carol is dedicated to the success of her students and will go above and beyond to explain material and make her students confident in their learning. I have always trusted Carol’s advice and instruction and her guidance is priceless!
