My teaching approach is to ascertain the students needs, learning style of the student or students and then create lessons where they will learn at their optimum ability. I have taught students from age 8-16 (in summer camp settings), college level students attending university and at an International School, adults of all ages.
I have been an ESL teacher for 8 years, in San Diego, CA and in Santiago, Chile. I have worked with all ages and levels of students. I have also worked with college students, preparing them for Ielts or Toef exams. I also have experience preparing students for GED test.
