M.F.A. Master English Language Teacher, Professor with Global Experience, Salt Lake City

Methodology

I like to get to know each students' main interests and base lessons on that, increasing involvement and familiarity as we work on basics and scaffolding as we go. Establishing objectives early is important to me, as is the feeling of accomplishment with student successes, both minor and major.

Background

I am a certified English Instructor with over a decade of experience, teaching ESL, AP English courses, and College Composition via Texas Southmost College and Huaihua University in Hunan Province, China. I taught Oral, Written, and Business English, and can assist with college essays and applications.
