Together We CAN and WILL Make English a Logical, Rational, Easy-to-Learn Language

Methodology

My main teaching method is to use what students already know, if possible, and build on that knowledge. I NEVER ask the question, "Does anyone have questions?" (I find that people either do not have questions or, more often, fear asking a question that might expose the student who is usually thinking EVERYONE knows or that the student may well have questions but have no idea what the question/s might be. I always prepare a quiz for end of each class--never a 'pop' quiz so the students kow this is for support not for testing and allows us to review what we've done that day, and then go over the quiz together. Each student recognizes any problem area/s. The students always take the quiz along home to study for the next week where we will review before starting new material. Adult learners rarely are comfortable in a class that demands memorization. By the time we get to an actual "exam", the students feel very strong in what we have done. In following classes, as we add more words/concepts, we insert previous work so that none "grow cold."

Background

I have been teaching for more than 20 years. During that time, I have taught online and in-person. My teaching philosophy is this: Students do NOT successfully learn or retain information using "memorization". I have taught many students from 1997 to the present time. Here's what my teaching "mantra" is: We use what you already know to build on new concepts. An example from when I teach English or Medical Terminology: Have you ever seen a sign above a door that says "EXIT"? So, when we consider that the beginning of a word (in the case, "EX") what does that word mean? What do you think the prefix (the beginning of a word) 'Ex-" means? Of course, it means "out". We have all seen that sign many times. So, let's consider: what does that word "EXhale" probably mean?
