ESL professional with a Master's Degree and over 25 years teaching experience

Methodology

I plan my courses around the needs of the students. If it's a conversation class, for example, current topics are discussed, and stress, intonation and accent correction are monitored. Additionally, language needed for various situations is emphasized and reviewed.



Background

I am an ESL professional with over 25 years experience. Much of my teaching has been done abroad as I have taught in 7 different countries, including the USA. Most of my extended experience has been at the university level
