TESOL Certified ESL Teacher and Computer Engineer with 20 Years of Experience in San Diego, California

Methodology

My students say my classes are very interesting and lively, and in one lesson they can learn a lot. I offer timely corrections and advice. I am thorough and dedicated. When my students don't understand something, I use small puppet shows, pictures, rich expression,s and a lot of patience to help them. My students say I am a great teacher and most study with me for many years. I welcome you to study with me! :)
