Naturalist/Bilingual Teacher with 30+ years experience offers ESL/SSL for learners aged 3 to adult.

Methodology

The heart of my methodology is to meet language needs by capitalizing on the student's passion. Once I understand the student's level of ability, goals, and interests, I facilitate and moderate by providing meaningful practice and scaffolding the steps to reach realistic language proficiency levels. I am detail oriented and relationship oriented. I am experienced in coaching people to stretch their comfort levels to realize their language learning ambitions.

Background

I love people and the outdoors. That passion as fuel, along with a science degree and my Bilingual Teaching Credential, have provided me a joyful living as an educator in 3 states. I have helped hundreds of elementary students learn the basics to become fluent speakers, readers and writers in English (and Spanish.) These discoveries guide my teaching: 1. Language is best acquired through motivating social activities like music, movement, theatre and science...anything that increases natural, relaxed practice. 2. We study a second language because we want access to the culture, the people, the LIFE that expresses itself through that language. 3. Our brain complies by growing new pathways and a new language center to accommodate that desire.

Suzanna's resume

BS Natural Resource Planning and Interpretation (+5 years of Spanish) from Humboldt State University
B-CLAD Multiple Subject Teaching Credential, Sonoma State University
16 years full-time bilingual public school teacher in CA, OR, CO (K-4th grades)
My experience includes teaching academic English to international European students 15-18, vocational English to adult day laborers, and oral English to speech delayed 3 year olds.
My native-like Spanish fluency allowed me to serve as an Environmental Educator Liaison in Costa Rica to promote sustainable forestry practices in Tortuguera National Park and as a medical translator in Peru.
Although I have primarily worked with Spanish speaking families, I have also taught formal adult ESL to immigrants from Africa and Asia.
