I prefer teaching online, zoom is a good option. It is important to know what your goal is for each learning session such as clarification, repetition with successful and positive reinforcement, some demonstrations, role playing, and writing some paragraphs regarding main concepts.
I have recently retired from the VA after 20 years working with Veterans. I love music and play the piano, I also know a lot about flowers, plants, and trees. Cooking vegetables and fresh foods for a family is my hobby! I have lived in several states, Japan, and Okinawa and I've done medical mission work in Honduras and Guyana.
