-English or Spanish tutoring for all levels of proficiency -Local in Wilmington, NC but classes are online -30+ years of teaching experience, Master's Degree in TESOL

Methodology

I believe in a learner-centered teaching philosophy. I analyze what level the student has and find out why they want to study the target language. It's important to know what the student is interested in as I will customize lessons to meet the student's needs. I enjoy helping students to engage in their learning and encourage students to be responsible for their own learning.

Background

I have been teaching English and Spanish for over 30 years. For 20 years, I was the director of a university-based ESL program. My specialties are pronunciation and curriculum development. I can teach for all levels of proficiency and areas of language development.
Since 2018, I have been doing online tutoring, either private or group lessons.
In addition, I am a Yoga instructor. My personal mission in life is to help create a more peaceful, sustainable world. I really love to travel and learn about world cultures and languages.
