Credentialed teacher: teaching ESL to adults and children in Orange County with 40+ years experience

Methodology

I use a variety of ways to teach. I taught a Spanish student to read English using Sign Language, Spanish and English. I have in the past learned some of the language of the student in order to know the differences between the language. I learned some Tamil in order to help a Tamil speaker learn my language. I have studied Vietnamese and Korean in order to help my students learn English better.

Background

I am a credentialed teacher. I have been teaching ESL and Reading and English to adults and children since I was in college. I have studied German and Spanish in school. I have studied other languages with native speakers.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $40/h

Details
