Experienced educationist in Terre Haute, Indiana gives GED prep., college composition, and ESL lessons

Methodology

My teaching approach is student-centered. I strongly consider my students' knowledge level of the subject matter as well as their learning styles at the beginning of the school session. This consideration can be reached after one-on-one interviews, or pretest, for example.

Background

I was a college adjunct faculty member while working as a teacher/education specialist at the Federal Bureau of Prisons for 20 years. I taught all GED subjects and helped approximately one thousand students graduate. I also taught English Composition, ESL, and Literature in English as a college adjunct lecturer. I have a Ph.D. in Urban Higher Education.
