Methodology

My teaching approach is student centered. I take the time to ascertain both strengths and weaknesses, capitalizing on student interests. I do not get involved with Instagram, and am not particularly excited by iPhones, either. iPads are okay, and I am a good listener. It's all about the student, not me. Social media needs and desires are up to the student. I am for higher level thinking: application, analysis, and evaluation are crucial keys to success, in my view. I am a stickler for punctuality, wakefulness, and a positive attitude. It's all about progress, not perfection. Oh yeah, and let's have fun while we are at it, shall we? I have not forgotten what it's like to laugh. It's good medicine, and a steady dose is a good thing. Let's leave the dour and the negativity on the other side of the door.

Background

I have been teaching English language arts since humans lived in caves. Well, okay, eighteen years. I have experience in all kinds of stuff; teaching English for eleven years overseas, GED, verbal SAT, essay writing, grammar, sky high vocabulary, and proofreading. I was also a homebound teacher. It has been a great honor to assist students of all ages, from kids to adults.
