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.
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.
I will offer a discount for more than one person in a family. If either cancel, and the lesson is paid for, we will reschedule and do a make-up lesson.
